Colias crocea (Geoffroy 1785)
Nome comune: Limoncella, Edusa
Ali anteriori 23-27 mm


Lepidottero di media grandezza dalla livrea giallo-arancio con larghe fasce marginali nel cui interno, ma solo nelle femmine, sono comprese macchie gialle. Le parti inferiori sono di colore giallo-citrino con una coppia di punti bianchi contornati di rossiccio sulle ali posteriori. Queste ultime presentano, inoltre, una serie di punti scuri nella regione postdiscale. Non di rado si osservano femmine dalla colorazione bianco-verdastra ascritte alla forma "helice", fissata geneticamenteQueste farfalle hanno come colore dominante il giallo, arricchito da sfumature aranciate, più tenue per la femmina, più intense per il maschio. Si osserva ancora, nel maschio, un bordo nero nella parte terminale delle ali anteriori che continua anche nelle posteriori. Nella femmina al posto di questo bordo nero vi è una serie di piccole macchie scure disposte in fila in maniera crescente dal basso verso l'alto.
In entrambi gli esemplari presentano un margine intero e convesso con due venature anali nelle ali posteriori.

Sverna come bruco nascosto tra anfratti e sotto le pietre. In primavera avviene la metamorfosi in crisalidi succinte provviste di un appuntito processo cefalico. A partire da maggio e fino all'autunno, si susseguono varie generazioni. Piante nutrici sono diverse Leguminose e soprattutto le vecce, sulle quali vengono deposte uova rosso-arancio.

Diffusa in Europa centro-meridionale, Nordafrica e Asia minore. Ovunque in Italia, dalla pianura ai 2400 m. Specie tra le più comuni nel territorio, ove si riscontra con frequenza nelle campagne coltivate e al limitare dei boschi.
Prima farfalla dell'autunno

Hello Silvio,
thank you for posting this nice picture of one of the late croceus of the year with wing lesions - the markings of a turbulent life. You focused exactly on the head of the butterfly and the flower, both presented with pretty good sharpness. The background colour is most suitable to show insect and plant.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Silvio.
What a nice eyes of your beautiful model. I like pictured scene very much. Image is greatly composed, lightened and coloured. Flower and butterfly are reflected with great taste and skillfulness. Excellent impressive POV and superb details of the main subject. BG is well saturated and blurred and supplements the beautiful subject perfectly. My best regards and compliments.
Alexei.

Bonsoir Silvio,
Les Colias sont magnifiques, mais avec le jaune particulier de leurs ailes, ils sont un sujet difficile. Tu as bien capté la coloration et elle est en plus en contraste avec l'arrière-plan. Bien vu.
Bonne soirée
Anne

Hi Silvio,
I look at your portfolio. This is one of the best. it is very nice shot of Colias and pinky flowers. Great coloration and fantastic BG. focus, sharpness, POV, composition also very nice. thanks for sharing.
best wishes
Ahmet
