Aglais

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, [1] [2] [3][4] which also includes tortoiseshells, but it is usually considered to be separate.[5] This proposed separate genus is also consider “brushfooted butterflies” historically together with the other or separate nymphalis species.[6]
