We clarify which of two designated lectotypes of Chrysophanus florus Edwards, 1884 is valid. We also show that the putative holotype of Plebeius saepiolus insulanus Blackmore, 1920 is actually a lectotype. A valid neotype designation for Lycaena saepiolus amica Edwards, 1863 is provided. Publication dates are corrected and we also briefly review the various taxonomic interpretations and distributions that appear in the literature with respect to these taxa.
