Inachis io or Aglais io

The proposed change appears to result from this paper: http://nymphalidae.utu.fi/WahlbergNylin2003.pdf, however both Inachis and Aglin this paper, so it is still quite reasonable to keep them in separate genera if desired, i.e. it is a subjective matter.

Correction: Inachis io or Aglais io

Sorry for typo, the full text should read - The proposed change appears to result from this paper: http://nymphalidae.utu.fi/WahlbergNylin2003.pdf, however both Inachis and Aglais are monophyletic groups in this paper, so it is still quite reasonable to keep them in separate genera if desired, i.e. it is a subjective matter.
