I'm Behind the Times
I'm back in the days of Euphydryas chalcedona, Variable Checkerspot. I better submit my "good" dorsal photograph. Thanks David.

They're still hashing it out
The trend now is to go back to two (or some people have three) species again. I tried to arrange them here so that they made some sense, but to keep it still "legal". There is a lot of "stuff" about what is what and why (and how confused they still are) in the Info section of each of the four groups here at the "species" level.

The shot of the upper side would be great to have here!
