The population around Manaus (rio Urubu, Lindoià) was described in December 2022 by G. Séraphin as a new subspecies named Agrias narcissus chrysotaenia. Yellow females are characterized by an oblique band positioned higher and significantly wider, reducing the dark preapical area. Males are red and show no noticeable difference from the typical narcissus form.
