Stan ["support for DZ's "ombriole" derivation from VN's Russian translation of "Speak Memory" [...] It's at least arguable that "aureole" graced a favoured place in VN's lexis] et alii,

There is definite proof that aureoles graced VN's lexis and experience. Cf. his article on
"Neartic Neonympha" (Lepidoptera. Satyridae). There is even a "maniola" associated to its "aureole". The word "fulvous" (russet?) is also a familiar favorite elsewhere.

neonympha maniola n.sp. More elongated apically than in dorothea with slightly slanting termen; [...] rather broadly aureolated with diffuse pale fulvous unlike any dorothea race.
