Pontia edusa (Fabricius 1777) Edusa


Ali anteriori 21-24 mm


Farfalla di medie dimensioni, la cui livrea ricorda molto quella delle cavolaie. superiormente bianca con disegni neri all'angolo anteriore e netta macchia sul limitare della cellula. Le ali posteriori si presentano con macchie estese di colore verde scuro che si lasciano intravedere per trasparenza. La sua posizione sistematica è stata rivista solo recentemente, per cui in alcuni testi è possibile ritrovarla sotto il vecchio binomio di Pontia daplidice.


Dalle crisalidi svernanti emergono larve che prediligono Crucifere (genere Sinapis ed altri) e Resedacee. I bruchi si riconoscono per la colorazione di fondo bluastra sulla quale fanno spicco strisce longitudinali gialle. Gli adulti compaiono in marzo inoltrato e da questo periodo in poi si succedono due o più generazioni a seconda delle condizioni climatiche.

La specie è presente in tutta Italia, dalla pianura fino ai 1500 m. Nel comprensorio in esame è tra le farfalle più comuni ed accade di osservarla fino a novembre su campi, siepi e radure soleggiate.

Hi Silvio. This is a first class close up of this butterfly. Which you have taken with fine detail and sharp focusing.The side view shows all of the wing markings. with good use of the light. well taken TFS.
Nick..

Gran nitidez por el preciso enfoque realizado. Muy buen fondo para el contraste.
Abrazo y buen fin de semana Silvio: J. Ignasi.

Hallo Silvio
This is indeed a very tiny and fragile looking butterfly. You have captured the whites on the insect well and the clarity in the face is super. The linings and contours on the butterfly’s wings are displayed beautifully, and is eye-catching. A wonderful presentation that is soft on the eye. Thanks for sharing and although words are few, appreciation is plenty. Best regards.

Bonjour Silvio,
Un papillon que j'avais raté, d'une grande beauté et pas si souvent montré. Je ne l'ai que rarement vu et dans mes archives il n'y a pas une si belle image, comme tu nous la présentes. J'aime beaucoup la tonalté couleur terre de l'arrière-plan et bien sûr le magnifique "design" des ailes du papillon.
Bien vu et présenté
Un grand merci. Ici il neige!
Amicalement
Anne
