Order: Lepidoptera

(unranked) Rhopalocera

Superfamily: Papilionoidea

Family: Nymphalidae

Subfamily: Nymphalinae

Tribe: Nymphalini

Genus: Inachis

Species: I. io

The European peacock caterpillar (Inachis io), more commonly known simply as the peacock caterpillar, is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe and Asia. It is the only member of the genus Inachis which is sometimes included in Nymphalis. It should not be confused or classified with the "American peacocks" in the genus Anartia; these are not close relatives of the present species. The peacock butterfly is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees. It therefore often appears quite early in spring.The butterfly hibernates over winter before laying its eggs in early spring, in batches of up to 500 at a time. The caterpillars, which are shiny black with six rows of barbed spikes and a series of white dots on each segment, hatch after about a week and feed on nettles and hops.
The adult butterflies drink nectar from a wide variety of flowering plants, including buddleia, sallows, dandelions, wild marjoram, danewort, hemp agrimony, and clover; they also utilize tree sap and rotten fruit.The Peacock can be found in woods, fields, meadows, pastures, parks, and gardens, and from lowlands up to 8,200 feet elevation. It is a relatively common butterfly seen in many European parks and gardens.
Ordine: Lepidoptera
Famiglia: Nymphalidae
Genere: Inachis
Specie: Inachis io (L.)
Nome comune: Vanessa io, Occhio di pavone
Apertura alare: 5,5 – 6 cm

La famiglia dei ninfalidi, comprende un numero cospicuo di specie (circa una settantina in tutta Europa) tutte con la caratteristica di essere molto vistose. Le zampe anteriormente sono ridotte, ma, esclusivamente negli esemplari maschili sono simili a spazzole. Per alcune specie la struttura delle zampe anteriori è quasi l’unico carattere che permette di distinguerne il sesso. Presentano antenne clavate.
Molti ninfalidi, tra cui la Vanessa io (Inachis io), vanno in ibernazione allo stadio adulto, nascondendosi in angoli bui durante l’inverno in accordo con la caratteristica di avere la parte inferiore molto scura.
L’Inachis io presenta una livrea molto elegante, la parte superiore, molto vistosa, presenta le cosi dette “macchie ocellate” utilizzate per distogliere l’attenzione dal corpo da parte di eventuali predatori, mentre inferiormente è bruno scuro con delle linee nero violacee utile per la mimetizzazione.

Il bruco è nero, spinoso con dei puntini bianchi. Lo sviluppo avviene su specie nutrici quali l’ortica (Urtica dioica L.) e il Luppolo (Humulus lupulus L.). Lo sfarfallamento avviene tra giugno e luglio.
Si trova in giardini e prati.
La specie è comune in tutta Italia isole comprese, dalla pianura ai 2500 m. La distribuzione va dall’Europa, Asia temperata sino in Giappone.

Hello Silvio !
This is such a wonderful picture ! I really like how the red butterfly stands out on the blurred green BG, it is the most beautiful contrast. I also like the typical pose of the butterfly with the wings wide open, so we can fully admire its beauty. The cheerful colors and excellent composition are also adding to the beauty of this picture. Very well done !
Valérie.

Ciao Silvio! Perfect work, master work, High Fidelity, ideal sharpness, great exposure. Well done!

Bonsoir Silvio,
Toujour en retard, mais je voulais te féliciter pour cette belle image d'un paon de jour, papillon très difficile à bien photographier. Une image simple et bien structurée et une belle netteté aussi.
Bonne soirée et bonne nuit
Amitiés
Anne
