At this point, this thread ought to be re-titled to something more generic.

It's called "Thread Drift", my 2nd most hated pet peeve about the internet.

Don't retitle another author's post, move the drifters to a new post. That's moderation.

I have retitled my thread appropriately/accordingly.

Since all of the posts were Colias related it didn't upset me. These are easy fixes and are not for a lack of moderation.

Which one ? "The genus Colias" published in 2012 or a more recent one ?

May be Bob can inform why ponteni / imperialis seems not illustrated or treated in the book ?

The book was on the Old World Colias only. It was already a massive amount of work, and to add North and South American species would have made it impossible.
