Nymphalis c-album (Linnaeus 1758) sinonimi: Polygonia c-album, (Vanessa c-album)
Comma (inglese)
Robert-le-Diable (francese)

Ordine Lepidoptera
Super famiglia Papilionidea
Famiglia Nymphalidae
Sottofamiglia Nymphalis
Genere Polygonia

La famiglia dei ninfalidi è composta da un elevato numero di specie, sono circa una settantina in Europa. Tutte queste farfalle hanno la medesima caratteristica di essere molto vistose. Le zampe anteriori sono ridotte e solo negli esemplari maschi somigliano a spazzole. In alcune di queste specie è possibile capire il sesso della farfalla solo grazie alla struttura delle zampe anteriori.
Un'altra caratteristica che le accomuna è che sono delle farfalle migratorie. Il più famoso lepidottero migratore dei ninfalidi è la farfalla Monarca.

Le Vanessa, anche esse appartenenti alla famiglia dei Ninfalidi, si caratterizzano per essere farfalle diurne.

La Vanessa c-bianco ha un’apertura alare di circa 45 mm. Questa farfalla è una delle più caratteristiche farfalle europee. I colori e la forma delle ali, con margini vistosamente frastagliati, rendono la specie riconoscibile anche solo in base alla sua sagoma. Il colore delle ali arancione chiaro con disegni bruni e rovescio scuro con evidente marcatura bianca, a forma di C, sull’ala posteriore. Il bruco si sviluppa su diverse piante tra cui ortica, luppolo e olmo. Una specie simile, ma meno diffusa, è la Polygonia egea.

E’ comune in tutta Italia in diversi ambienti fioriti, margini dei boschi, siepi e giardini fino a 2000 metri di quota. Il periodo di attività degli adulti osservabili tra marzo e settembre in 2 generazioni. Gli adulti della seconda generazione svernano.

A wonderful orange butterfly. I think orange in butterflies..as an overall dominant colour, is much less in the US. for me it has been dozens of years since seeing one such as this. Very fine image.

C-album is a class unto itself, Maurizio, and it shows in this brilliant picture.
The dabs of dark colour on its curvy orange wings make it one of the most intricately made butterfly in the world.
Thanks for sharing this image and warm regards.

Hello Maurizio !
This is a butterfly I'm still waiting to capture - looking for him every summer, but in vain. maybe he doesn't live in my region. But I'm happy to see him on such beautiful pictures as this one. Excellent sharp details, vivid colors, nice contrast between orange and green, wonderful pose of the butterfly, splendid blurred BG, beautiful composition and POV... Really a great picture, very well done !
Valérie.

Hello Maurizio,
Superb shot! beautiful butterfly
TFS & best regards
