Satyrium oenone Sichuan, China Andrew Neild
Introduction
The number of species in the genus Satyrium is subject to conjecture, as it is likely that the 80-100 currently recognised species will eventually be split into sub-genera or allocated to new genera. The North American 'satyrium' group of species for example have several characteristics that separate them from species found in the Palaearctic region.
The Palaearctic species are loosely split into 4 groups - the 'armenia', 'nordmannia', 'superflua' and 'ornata' groups. Satyrium oenone is a member of the ornata group which comprises of 34 species, the majority of which are endemic to China.
Satyrium oenone is found in Tibet, and in the Sichuan and Yunnan provinces of China.
