NOTE: Except for Melanargia standfussi, the Melanargia species illustrated on this page are in line with
Nazari, V.; Ten Hagen, W.; Bozano, G.C. 2010: Molecular systematics and phylogeny of the 'Marbled Whites' (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae, Satyrinae, Melanargia Meigen). Systematic entomology, 35: 132–147.

For Melanargia standfussi, personally I disagree with their findings since this species is consistently much larger than any Melanargia larissa subspecies and the wing markings are consistently different.
