Chilades trochylus ( Jewel Blue) [in Turk. Mücevher Kelebeği]

Mücevher Kelebeği için ülkemizin en küçük kelebeği diyebiliriz. Bu türe ait kanat açıklığı 12 mm ile 28 mm arasında değişiyor. Genellikle Kurak yerleri severler. Yaşam alanları Ön Asya, Güneydoğu Asya ile Madagaskar adası olarak belirlenmiştir. Nisan ile Eylül sonlarına kadar görülmesi mümkün olup ülkemizde daha çok güney kesimlerde bulunurlar.

Eng:Male upperside: brown, somewhat variable in tint. Specimens from dry localities are much, paler than those taken in areas with a comparatively heavy rainfall.
Forewing : uniform, with a very ill-defined anticiliary dark line in some specimens. Hind wing: a subterminal series of round black spots crowned with pale ochraceous, the posterior four spots generally well defined and outwardly edged with white, the anterior spots obsolescent and without the interior edging of yellow or the outer edging of white; a well-marked, slender anticiliary black line. Cilia white, basal halves brown.
Underside: pale silky brown. Forewing: with the following white markings:—a short line on the inner and outer sides of the discocellulars ; a transverse, slightly curved, discal series of small, more or less incomplete rings; a transverse postdiscal series of disconnected slender lunules; a subterminal series of similar but more regular lunules and a terminal broken line, followed by a dark unbroken anticiliary line; the groundcolour between the two short discocellar lines, that enclosed within each ring of the discal markings, and between the sub-terminal lunules and the terminal line slightly darker than on the rest of the wing. Hind m ing: two short white lines on the discocellulars ; the discal, poatdiscal and terminal markings as on the fore wing, except that enclosed between the subterminal series of white lunules and the terminal white line is a complete series of dark spots, the posterior three or four jet-black sprinkled outwardly with metallic-green scales and encircled with pale ochraceous. In addition there are a transverse subbasal series of four white-encircled black spots and a similar subcostal spot in middle of interspace 7. Antennae, head, thorax and abdomen brown, the shaft of the antennce speckled with white; beneath: palpi, thorax and abdomen white.

Haha:) dostum bunlar gıdayı nereden alacaklarını çok iyi biliolar:) Sanırım bir dışkı ama ne dışkısı bilemediM:)
Bu kadarını bir arada görmen büyük şans valla:) Tamamı dişi olmalı zira bu davranışı hep dişiler sergiler.
Ellerine ve emeğine sağlık. İyi bir hafta dileklerimle.

Merhaba Mehmet,
An excellent capture of four fresh specimens (I don't count the OOF one in the BG!) of C. trochylus taking neutrients from an animal dropping. The sharpness where in focus and the natural colours are excellent. The composition and lighting are great too.
Thanks and best regards,
Ivan

Hello Mehmet,
Not easy to have four butterflies in focus..and you did well here with this small assembly of cute jewel Blues, a species of butterfly I never have seen. They seem to be attracted to something not very fine-looking for us :-)
Kind regards
Anne
