Due to the sheer number of named aberrations for some species, not all are shown on the species pages - only those for which corresponding images are available. This page, however, provides access to all of the named aberrations for a given species, where known and Goodson & Read (1969) is a key resource in this regard.

ab. fulva (Osthelder.Schmett.Sudbayern.1925.1.p.134.pl.6.figs.9-11.)

Yellowish-brown with lighter black pattern, the basal area of the forewings yellowish-brown instead of yellowish-black.

All the black bands reduced, allowing an extension of the ground colour.

ab. nana (Stephan.Z.Wiss.Ins.Biol.1924.19.p.49.)

Small specimens measuring 11-12mm.

ab. obscura (Aigner.Ann.Mus.Nat.Hung.1906.4.p.514.fig.23.)

Much darker than the type [typical form]. The figure shows the tawny areas very much reduced on all wings, the extreme margins filled in with black, especially on the forewings. All wings show much more black than fulvous.

ab. obsoleta (Tutt.Brit.Butts.1896.p.211.)

= browni E.B.(Oberthür.in litt.).Cat.Lep.Fr.1923.p.72.,Cat.Lep.Gironde.1928.p.36.

The small black dots just before the margins are completely absent on all wings. The figure of browni in Lamb.35.pl.7.f.4 shows the marginal dots absent on all wings, the margins are said to be whitish-yellow instead of fulvous.

ab. pallida (Gussich.Glasnik.Hrvats.Prirodosl.Drustva.1917.29.p.221.)

All bands and spots white. Presumably this means the tawny areas, leaving the ground colour white.

ab. semibrunnea (Osthelder.Schmett.Sudbayern.1925.1.p.134.pl.6.f.7.)

Upperside of the hindwings uniformly black as far as the fulvous marginal band. The figure shows a slight trace of the median spots, probably showing through from the underside. Osthelder gives Vorbrodt as the author and Bang-Haas gives a reference Schmett.Schweiz.1911.1.p.105 but I can find no mention there [Goodson & Read].
