[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Swiss Brassy Ringlet
Schillernder Mohrenfalter
Moiré cuivré

Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily: Satyrinae
Genus: Erebia
Wingspan: 26-32mm
Distribution: European Alps (1600-3000m)

They have a brassy sheen on their upperwings which can be seen when their is an interference with light. We can see on the picture at the upper part of the wings some kind of blueish coloration.
I think I caught here a female laying her eggs in the low vegetation (at 2000m).

In Germany this species is on the red list of very threatened species.
