Abstract On the island of Öland, in the Baltic, a species of the Aricia genus is rather frequent. From the appearance of the imago, it was previously regarded as A. agestis Schiff., however, since 1966 it has been registered as ssp. horkei Høegh-Guldberg under A. artaxerxes F. (=allous G.-Hb.) because it must be considered univoltine. In 1972, the author examined the morphology and biology of the early stages which point towards artaxerxes; and renewed expanded analyses of imaginal morphology likewise confirm the results from 1966 which, in spite of certain agestis-like features, showed that the Oland Ariciae are artaxerxes. A crossing experiment with A. artaxerxes ssp. rambringi Høegh-Guldberg from Sandhammaren, Skane, likewise indicates that the two populations belong to the same species.
