Genetic data.

Based on COI barcode sequences from larvae collected from Aquilegia  sp. (DEI-GISHym20983 and DEI-GISHym21482), P. rufipes  belongs to the same BIN cluster (BOLD:AAI2590) as P. brevis  and P. thalictri  (Fig. 5). Maximum distance within the BIN is 1.74% and minimum between species distance is 0.00%. The nearest neighbour to BOLD:AAI2590, diverging by minimum of 3.58%, is BOLD:AAU8834 (specimens are from Canada, which externally look like P. cincta  ). It is possible that specimens of P. rufipes  belong also to other closely related BINs (BOLD:ABV4437, BOLD:ABU9175, and BOLD:ACW1774). Based on nuclear data, maximum within species divergence is 0.4% (based on three specimens and both genes combined) and the nearest neighbour ( P. brevis  ) is 0.2% (only NaK) or 0.5% (both genes combined) different.

Host plants.

Aquilegia vulgaris  L. ( Macek 2016), A. chrysantha  A.Gray ( Chevin 1994, as P. aquilegiae  ), A. caerulea  E.James ( Chevin 1994, Hellrigl 2007), A. canadensis  L. ( Chevin 1994), A. flabellata  Siebold & Zucc. ( Hellrigl 2007), A. olympica  Boiss. ( Liston 2011).
