|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
If I am right, then this is H. statilinus which has the common mae Tree Grayling in my book on European butterflies. Perhaps one of my Italian friends, or a specialist in Satyrini, might be able to make a more confident ID.
This is another Umbrian insect captured in the hills at about 800m elevation on a sunny day in September. Hand held at 1/350th, the depth of field just running out a bot at the tip of the forewing. I should probably have used a faster ISO setting and a smaller aperture. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Thanks for looking.
