[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Pearly Heath (Coenonympha arcania) is fairly common in the Eastern half of Southern Sweden and as it is very rare in Scania we took the opportunity to photograph it on our trip north.
It flies as if hopping over the long grasses of its habitat, seldom visiting flowers, but often settling on a leaf or blade of grass to sun itself. Like many Satyrids, or Browns, it never opens its wings when settled.
There four species of this genus in Sweden, the Small Heath, here , taken by Ulla recently, being the most common.
In Europe and N. Africa there are 16 members of this Heath genus.
The larval host plants are various species of grass.
