Remarks: Hübner figured the Portuguese insect and he applied to it the name of thetis. Hoffmannsegg replaced replaced that name with the one of ines but this is not right; the ancient Hübner's name must be used. The series, 25 to 36, shows the way by which the type race varies. The females are rare.
