Notes
Monastyrskii,2008 treated this species as distinct species, however some authors regard it as a subspecies of louisa. The relationship and taxonomic status of louisa group including mathilda, eamesi and devyatkini are still unclear. I follow the treatment of Monastyriskii provisionally but further study is needed.
