Ali anteriori 23-26 mm

Farfalla di media grandezza (la femmina può toccare i 30 mm di apertura alare), che si distingue facilmente dagli altri satiridi nostrani per la livrea nera e bianca. Superiormente, evidenzia un disegno a scacchiera che si ripete sulle parti inferiori con tonalità giallastre. I disegni appaiono meno appariscenti sulle ali posteriori, sulle quali si osserva, inoltre, una serie interrotta di ocelli submarginali.

Specie univoltina, con svernamento allo stadio larvale e sfarfallamento in giugno-luglio. I bruchi, pelosi, sono di colore variabile dal verde-giallo al bruno, con due linee longitudinali scure dorsali e un paio di linee giallastre lateralmente. Testa e appendici caudali sono rosso-bruni. Conducono vita diurna nutrendosi di Graminacee (gen. Phleum, Festuca, Bromus, Dactylis ecc.) alla base delle quali si impupano. Se disturbati, si arrotolano su se stessi lasciandosi cadere al suolo.

Con alcune sottospecie, si estende dall'Europa centr-meridionale e Nordafrica all'Iran. Presente in tutta Italia, eccetto Sardegna, dalla pianura ai 3000 m. Poco frequente nel territorio, ove la si è osservata in volo su radure fiorite.

Ci siamo dati appuntamento per postare?
Bellissimi colori e composizione, purtroppo il fuoco non é sull'occhio ma subito dietro - peccato! Inoltre, un filo in più di aria intorno non avrebbe fatto male.
Comunque una bella foto :)

Ciao Silvio,
A very good capture di questa farfalla!
It's very good your POV and the pose caught on the insect, while standing over the flower.
I like so much the blurred background, that stands out so well the subject.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.

mi sembra che il fuoco sia leggermente dietro? o è un micromosso?
