The Southern White Admiral (Limenitis reducta) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. It is found in Northern Spain, South and Eastern France, Italy and the Alps. The wingspan is 22-27 mm. The butterfly flies from May to August depending on the location.


Elegante lepidottero dalle parti superiori nere con vistose macchie rettangolari bianche e una serie marginale di piccole chiazze blu. Le inferiori, hanno colore di fondo rossiccio con una fascia basale grigia e una larga banda centrale bianca. I sessi sono simili; l'apertura alare è circa 45-55 cm. Passa l'inverno allo stadio larvale per riprendere in primavera l'attività nutrendosi di caprifoglio (nei nostri querceti particolarmente Lonicera implexa). Il bruco ha il corpo verde con parti ventrali brunastre. Sul dorso spiccano caratteristiche escrescenze spinose. Dalla crisalide di tipo pendulo a maggio sfarfallano gli adulti. Normalmente due generazioni, ma in condizioni climatiche favorevoli, anche una terza. È' propria dell'Europa centro meridionale, ma quasi del tutto assente nella penisola iberica. In Italia è diffusa ovunque, dalla pianura ai 2000 m. Frequenta macchie e boschi radi ove è presente la sua pianta nutrice. Sempre più scarsa nel comprensorio per via della distruzione del suo habitat.

Bonjour Roberto,
Il me semble qu'en Italie c'est un papillon assez répandu, car on le voit souvent sur TN en provenance de ton pays...mais c'est toujours un plaisir de le voir, car avec ses reflets bleutés, c'est une beauté. Image simple et fine, une netteté admirable et des couleurs superbes. Un grand merci!
AmIcalement

Ciao Roberto,
A fantastic capture of a male L. reducta. The POV is just right to show the iridescence of the upper surface of the wings, taken with excellent sharpness and DOF against a great contrasting leafy BG.
This has to be a favourite!
Thanks and kind regards,
Ciao,
Ivan

Lovely capture of this elegant butterfly, Roberto.
Super POV from which the entire wing span of the butterfly is beautifully displayed.
Well done and TFS.
