For example, Necrozma has four forms but they're all called the Prism Pokémon. Kyurem is referred to as the Boundary Pokémon in all three of its forms. Are there any Pokémon whose different forms have different species epithets?

They're still technically the same Pokemon, so I would imagine not. The minimal amount of research I did three seconds ago with Oricorio, Arcanine, Corsola and Marowak seems to back that up.
I think Hoopa was the first Pokemon that has "species" for different forms. They added a few more after that, like Mr. Mime and Articuno.
Thanks for the examples; I just confirmed that those three, as well as Zapdos and Moltres, have different epithets (I prefer to call them that instead of species to alleviate confusion) for different forms. For whoever answers this question, could you please provide a complete list of such Pokémon for the benefit of those viewing this question in the future?
