Melanargia lachesis

Esta bolboreta pertence á familia Satyridae. Esta familia caracterízase por ter dous pares de patas funcionais nos machos e reducidos nas femias, vea M1 independente da vea radial e cunha ou máis vesículas basais inchadas. Aparte das características taxonómicas, as cores dos adultos soen ser de tons apagados e escuros, desta regra é excepción este xénero, que mestura o branco e o negro.

En Galicia atopamos catro especies deste xénero: Melanargia galathea, M. russiae, M. occitanica e M. lachesis, sendo esta última a máis común e espallada. Ata hai non moitos anos M. lachesis estaba considerada como unha subespecie de M. galathea. A subespecie nominal distribúese por todo o Oeste do continente europeo ata o Báltico.

Mostra preferencia por prados abertos e soleados, nos que pode acadar altas concentracións (0,06 exemplares/m2). A cita máis temperán recollida corresponde ó 15 de maio e a máis serodia ó 29 de agosto, o que coincide coa bibliografía xeral. É unha especie de tamaño medio, dando unha media de 27,98 mm de lonxitude alar (n=28), aínda que presenta unha grande variabilidade de tamaño.

Na bibliografía recóllense varias plantas nutricias: Poa pratensis, Phleum pratense, Brachypodium pinnatum, Holcus mollis e Holcus lanatus (Iglesias & Astor, 1992), Triticum spp (Higgins & Riley, 1973).

A distribución en Galicia abrangue todo o territorio, aínda que os datos propios do programa ESENGA son poucos como se pode ver no mapa adxunto.

Hello Jose,
What a fantastic photo. Everything looks so fragile. The butterfly is very sharp and the flowers with the BG are so harmonious. Great POV and composition. Great work!
Regards,
Peter

Hi Jose Ramon!
Gret composition and beautiful colours! I like a lot this delicate contrast between butterfly and the flower. DOF and POV are excellent too.
It is a pitty that this specimen does not have complete wings but on the other hand this is just a nature ;>
Regards and have a nice week!

Hi Jose,
I like the perching; soft blue almost pastel colours are wonderful.
Nice subject. Well composed.

Una macro perfecta, como si el objetivo estuviera posado en la hortensia, al lado de la mariposa. Buenos detalles y estupenda nitidez al par que una nota bastante completa.
Saludos amigo, JL.

A very delicate shot where colors are so sweet. The atmosphere is very restful and the butterfly so fragile. Well done.

bonjour josé ramon
je lui trouvait un air de ressemblance avec le mien,mais cela semble normale vu qu'il porte presque le même nom.
