*****************************

Meleager’s Blue is a medium-sized butterfly with a wingspan of 36-38 (mostly 15-20, at least in Turkey) mm.

The scalloped hindwings are very distinctive feature in this species. The male upperside is bright powder blue, the females is bordered with dark brown and tends to be more heavily marked on the underside. Both sexes are large.

It is found in S. Europe, Turkey, Middle East (Syria, Lebanon), Iran, Caucasus and South Urals. The adult butterflies begin to emerge in June and are on the wing until the end of Sepmtember in one generation (i.e. univoltine). However, in Turkey there are two flight period: it flies in the months of June and July in Western parts, whereas in Eastern parts are on the wing in Jully and September.

The larval host-plants is Coronilla species. Eggs laid on leaves upon which larva feed. In hot, dry situations, plants heavily shaded by rocks or bushes are usually prefered for oviposition. Hibernates as an egg or small larva: attended by some ant species (such as Lasius, Formica and Tapinoma species). Meleager’s Blue observed in grassy or bushy places, usually on limestone/base-rich substrates from 200 m to 1700 m.

Günaydın Bayram,
Another beauty from Çığlıkara! Very beautiful composition, blurred background and details of the wings. It's amazing how much species of butterflies can be found there. Güzel bir yeni hafta dileklerimle arkadaşım,

Ciao MBFBBB. So I' was lucky to capture this specie in Umbria, my born's Region during last holiday in August. Very hard for you to obtain so real colours with not so easy light's condition. Bit tender sharp, in my opinion. Anyway another interesting work.

Hello Vanni

Merhaba Bayram hocam,

Mavi'nin bir çok versiyonu var ülkemizde. Ancak bu türüyle ilk kez tanışma fırsatı buldum.
Harika kanat detyaları ve canlı renkler.
Muhtemelen endemik bir çiçek türü üzerindeki kompozisyon.
Resimdeki her unsur çok güzel ve etkileyici üstadım.
Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık.

Selam ve saygılarımla
Mehmet
