Zygaena Fabricius, 1775

WARNING! The subspecies treatment is approximate (mostly following NHM card index at time of updating, 2021), not having access to any complete modern publication to address ths issues. The infrasubspecific names are even more uncertain and messy (derived mostly from [ZRT] (Reiss & Tremewan, 1967 catalogue).
