Famiglia SATIRIDI

Maniola jurtina (Linnaeus 1758) Iurtina

Ali anteriori 22-25 mm

Lepidottero di medie dimensioni caratterizzato dalla livrea marrone-scuro e con sulle ali anteriori un ocello preapicale con pupilla, presente anche sulla pagina inferiore ove spicca sul colore di fondo ocra. Le ali posteriori presentano, di sotto, una colorazione giallo-grigia più uniforme nel maschio, marcata, nella femmina, da una fascia postdiscale chiara contenente una serie di puntini scuri.

La larva svernante riprende all'inizio dell'estate la sua attività compiendo subito dopo la metamorfosi. Generalmente un'unica generazione con sfarfallamenti che si protraggono per tutta l'estate fino ad ottobre. Il bruco ha tegumento verde-giallastro dorsalmente, più scuro ventralmente, con i fianchi percorsi da una linea biancastra sotto gli stigmi. Testa verde-bluastra. Conduce attività notturna nutrendosi di Graminacee (Poa, Agrostis, Bromus ecc.).

Con alcune sottospecie copre un vasto areale che dalle isole Canarie si estende all'Asia Minore e all'Iran. In Europa si spinge fino alla Scandinavia. Presente ovunque in Italia (subsp. hispulla), dalla pianura ai 1500 m. Specie comune nel territorio, ove frequenta ambienti assolati e campagne coltivate.

Ciao Silvio,
ho fotografato quasi la stessa scena il giorno 11, di questa specie, che fra l'altro pur avendola più volte fotografata, non ho ancora inserito; interessante ed inusuale questo incontro frontale ripreso con ottima definizione e splendidi colori e nel tuo quasi classico stile,
Grazie e complimenti.
