  • Baloria "Moore, 1900"[verification needed] (lapsus)
  • Clossiana Reuss, 1920 (but see text)
  • Proclossiana Reuss, 1926

Boloria is a brush-footed butterfly (Nymphalidae) genus. Clossiana is usually included with it nowadays, though some authors still consider it distinct and it seems to warrant recognition as a subgenus at least.


Listed alphabetically:[1][2][3]


Grunt described a brachiopod genus in 1973 under the same name. Since each code of biological nomenclature allows only for one genus with the same name, the brachiopod genus is in need of renaming.
