TAXONOMIC STATUS: Several of these nominal taxa have been treated as separate species. However, aside from differences in colour pattern, they are closely similar in morphology with a range of variation (Williams, 1991 [pdf]:68). Until more evidence to the contrary is available from critical studies of patterns of variation, I shall treat them as parts of a single variable species.

NOMENCLATURE: Tkalcu (1974b) first regarded B. kashmirensis and B. stramineus as conspecific and, following the Principle of First Reviser (ICZN, 1999: Article 24), chose B. kashmirensis as the name for the species.

DISTRIBUTION: Oriental Region, Palaearctic border.
