The Blue-spot Hairstreak is a butterfly of central and southern Europe, where it frequents hot dry areas of scrubland, grassland and woodland edges and clearings. Its favoured habitats range from sea level to 2000m and include bare or lightly wooded mountainsides as well as upland plains. The white streak across forewing and hindwing plus the blue spot on the edge of the hindwing are clearly visible.
Satyrium spini is very common in Portugal, where the specimen shown above was photographed. It is widely recorded in Spain, southern France, Germany and Poland, and across the Mediterranean region its range extends through Greece and Turkey into the Middle East.
