Araschnia levana - Rusałka kratkowiec (Linnaeus, 1758)

Spód skrzydeł fioletowobrunatny z białożółtą przepaską i siatkowanym białawym deseniem. Występują dwie formy sezonowe różniące się ubarwieniem wierzchu skrzydeł. U formy wiosennej na ceglastoczerwonym tle czarny deseń, u formy letniej na czarnym tle żółtawobiała przepaska zewnętrzna. Czasem spotykana jest forma pośrednia łącząca oba typy ubarwienia. Rozpiętość skrzydeł: 28 - 34 mm
Motyle żerują głównie na kwiatach roślin baldaszkowatych, chętnie pije płyny z wilgotnej ziemi. Samce często latają wzdłuż skrajów lasów i leśnych dróg w poszukiwaniu samic.
Gąsienice przepoczwarczają się na pokrzywach wisząc głową w dół
Gąsienice żyją początkowo gromadnie, później pojedynczo. Zaniepokojone spadają na ziemię.
Samice składają zielonkawe, owalne jaja w kolumienkach na dolnej stronie liści pokrzywy.
Występowanie
* Tereny ruderalne
* Skraje lasów
* Polany leśne
Rośliny żywicielskie podstawowe:
Urtica dioica L.

Hello Alina,

You have made an excelent close-up of this butterfly. The whole insect is kept in focus thereore the image is extremly sharp showing excelent details of wing's pattern. Also theyr texture can be well seen. The light was used in a very good way so that colors are so saturated and natural looking.

Congratulations,
Cristian

Piekna sprawa. Zrobilem w tym roku zdjecie kratnikowi ale teraz bede sie wstydzil je pokazac przy takiej jakosci twojej fotki. Idalna ostroc, wszystkie szczgoly widoczne, piekne zielone tlo Super
Pozdrawiam

Czesc Alina,
Wspaniala jakosc. Na pieknie rozmytym tle doskonale rysuja sie szczegoly rusalki. Dobrze nasycone kolory.
Gratuluje i pozdrawiam - Roma

superb, elegant pose and liveries of this wonderful Araschnia levana that I have never seen, another good catch Alina
compliments sERGIO

Hi Alina
beautiful the neutral tonalities of the butterfly that give a strong contrast from each other. Interesting the game of lights and shadows that you are successfully on the little insect. Remarkable the details and the focusing.
