Famiglia SATIRIDI

Melanargia galathea (Linnaeus 1758) Galatea
Ali anteriori 23-26 mm

Farfalla di media grandezza (la femmina può toccare i 30 mm di apertura alare), che si distingue facilmente dagli altri satiridi nostrani per la livrea nera e bianca. Superiormente, evidenzia un disegno a scacchiera che si ripete sulle parti inferiori con tonalità giallastre. I disegni appaiono meno appariscenti sulle ali posteriori, sulle quali si osserva, inoltre, una serie interrotta di ocelli submarginali.

Specie univoltina, con svernamento allo stadio larvale e sfarfallamento in giugno-luglio. I bruchi, pelosi, sono di colore variabile dal verde-giallo al bruno, con due linee longitudinali scure dorsali e un paio di linee giallastre lateralmente. Testa e appendici caudali sono rosso-bruni. Conducono vita diurna nutrendosi di Graminacee (gen. Phleum, Festuca, Bromus, Dactylis ecc.) alla base delle quali si impupano. Se disturbati, si arrotolano su se stessi lasciandosi cadere al suolo.

Con alcune sottospecie, si estende dall'Europa centromeridionale e Nordafrica all'Iran. Presente in tutta Italia, eccetto Sardegna, dalla pianura ai 3000 m. Poco frequente nel territorio, ove la si è osservata in volo su radure fiorite.

Hello Silvio!

I posted similiar specie today, but without opened wings. Very nice macro with lots of light and details. Also good composition with different stalks of grasses. Good work!

Hi Silvio,

A beautiful, beautiful butterfly. The diagonal composition is wonderful and gives it a 3-D effect. Colors are beautiful and the textures and details are superb. Looks fantastic against the nice green leaves.

Hello Silvio,

I really like the angle at which you have captured this. The wings are sharp and detailed, showing their beautiful patterns and texture. Very good dof.

Kind regards,

Butterfly season on TN seems to be in full swing these days, Silvio, and this gem of a picture from you adds to the richness of the butterfly delusion!
Brilliant look-out with fascinating details and colours.
