Zerynthia (Zerynthia) rumina canteneri (Felder & Felder, 1864)

(zoological nomenclature: valid name, available)

General information:

Synonyms, misspellings, wrong determinations, etc.:

Taxonomic note: Heydenreich (1851) has described ab. Canteneri, which is an unavailable infrasubspecific name. Furthermore, no type loclity has been given. Staudinger (1861) too used the name in the rank of an unavailable infrasubspecific name and referred the name to Spanish specimens. Felder & Felder (1864) however, where the first who used the name Canteneri in the rank of a variety, which means as subspecies, and referred the name to Algerian specimens. Therefore, this is the oldest available name for North African populations. It should be said furthermore, that var. ornatior has been published by Blachier not in 1905, as often stated, but only in 1908.
