Kirinia roxelana - Lattice Brown
Tr Name :Ağaç Esmeri
Family: Satyridae
Flight Time: April - September
Altitude: 0-1750m
This is a wonderful species. It is large and exotic amongst the European fauna. It is confined to south eastern Europe, principally in Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria and FYROM plus the Greek Islands. It lives amongst young and/or stunted trees and vineyards where it flits about in the shade settling on the trunks. Here it blends in very well in the dappled sunlight.
The males have an unusual balance. The forewings appear to be somewhat too small for the hindwing. They upperside has very bold and conspicuous scent brands although these can only be seen on captured specimens as they do not open their wings when at rest. The underside is a uniform grey-brown and has conspicuous eye spots. The female upperside has a veins lined black and, additional to the male, white patches near the sub-apical area. The underside is brighter carrying the upperside markings to the forewing, the hindwing being marbled with white scales throughout.
