Adelpha

Molecular and morphological evidence reveals three species within
the California sister butterfly, Adelpha bredowii
(Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Limenitidinae)
In recent decades the butterfly Adelpha bredowii (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae), known in the USA as the California Sister, has been considered to be a polytypic array of taxa, composed of two, three or four subspecies. The most recent
review of the genus (Willmott 2003a) recognized three: A. b. bredowii, A. b. eulalia (= guatemalensis) and A. b. californica.
