Nemeobius a junior synonym, The Duke of Burgundy FritillaryAndrew V. Z. Brower
A monotypic European genus that bears a superficial resemblance to a small melitaeine nymphalid. The English common name is a good example of why common names are problematical - most "fritillaries" are in the nymphalid tribe Argynnini.
Note that while Hamearis has priority over Nemeobius as a generic name for this taxon, Nemeobiinae has priority over Hamearinae as the earliest name applied at the family-level. (Nemeobius is an available name, even though it is an objective junior synonym).
