Green Hairstreak
Thècle de la ronce, Argus vert

I have already presented this special Lyceanidae in a former posting.


Trolle d'Europe

Family: Ranunculaceae
Tribus: Adonideae
Size: 20-60cm

It grows in damp ground in shady areas, woodland and scrub, flowering between June and August. It is slightly poisonous and is purgative and rubefacient when used fresh. This year, like other flowers, they already had their blossom in May.

This species is pollinated mostly by seed-eating flies belonging to the genus Chiastocheta (Anthomyiidae).
