Thanks for the compliments Ivan,
I was indeed very glad to have found this species,that is almost extinct in the Netherlands. It only appears in a small sandy area with sand dunes in Gelderland(that is in the central east part of the Netherlands. The first one seen this year in this region is on 18-08-2007(this species flies from the end of juli till half of september). Yesterday I saw 10 of them what is quite a lott for the circumstances here in the Netherlands. The distribution in Europe is to be seen here;http://www.butterfly-guide.co.uk/species/satyrids/prov5.htm
In the southern parts of Europe and a much more north in the eastern parts of Europe(Lithouwen and Poland inclusive)

With best regards Harm
