Aglais is a Holarctic genus of brush-footed butterflies, containing the tortoiseshells. This genus is sometimes indicated as a subgenus of Nymphalisor simply being an unnecessary division from the nymphalis genus,    which also includes tortoiseshells, but it is usually considered to be separate. This proposed separate genus is also consider “brushfooted butterflies” historically together with the other or separate nymphalis species.
