ABSTRACT. Studied specimens of the taxa fominae and szabokyi possess the gene Ef-1a characteristic of P. icarus. Specimens previously examined have a genetic mixture of two species: fominae — COI from P. icadius, ITS2 and Ef-1a from P. icarus; szabokyi — COI and ITS2 from P. icadius, Ef-1a from P. icarus. New data confirm that the taxa fominae and szabokyi are of hybrid origin with the sharing the parental species P. icarus and P. icadius.

KEY WORDS: hybrid, fauna, entomology, Lepidoptera, Lycaenidae, Polyommatinae.
