Per la par condicio sono costretto a postare una bianconera e una rossonera, la prima eccola....
Melanargia galathea

Linnaeus 1758

Nome Volgare: Galatea

Famiglia: Nymphalidae

Sottofamiglia: Satyrinae

Trib¨: Melanargiini

Lunghezza ala anteriore mm. 21-30

Descrizione: Farfalla di media grandezza (la femmina pu˛ toccare i 30 mm di apertura alare), che si distingue facilmente dagli altri satiridi nostrani per la livrea nera e bianca. Superiormente, evidenzia un disegno a scacchiera che si ripete sulle parti inferiori con tonalitÓ giallastre. I disegni appaiono meno appariscenti sulle ali posteriori, sulle quali si osserva, inoltre, una serie interrotta di ocelli submarginali. Cellula discale sulle psaa biancastra nei 2/3 basali, nera nel resto e non attraversata da una linea nera. Si pu˛ confondere con M. russiae, che per˛ ha la cellula biancastra attraversata da una fascia nera.

Maschio: colore bianco con ampie macchie nere che formano un grossolano reticolo

Femmina: simile al maschio ma generalmente pi¨ grande, le femmine presentano talvolta un rovescio caratteristico (forma leucomelas) con apice delle anteriori e ali posteriori di colore bianco giaognolo, prvo di disegni neri.

Rovescio: colore bianco giallastro. Ali anteriori simili al dritto ma con disegni neri ridotti. Posteriori simili al dritto ma con disegni grigiastri contornati di nero e una serie di macchiette submarginali scure cerchiate da una linea dello stesso colore.

Bruco: peloso, sono di colore variabile dal verde-giallo al bruno, con due linee longitudinali scure dorsali e un paio di linee giallastre lateralmente. Testa e appendici caudali sono rosso-bruni. Conducono vita diurna nutrendosi di Graminacee (gen. Phleum, Festuca, Bromus, Dactylis ecc.) alla base delle quali si impupano. Se disturbato, si arrotola su se stesso lasciandosi cadere al suolo.

Distribuzione: tutta Italia esclusa la Sardegna e l'Isola d'Elba.

Habitat: prati e radure dal piano basale a quello montano e cacuminale, sino a oltre 2000 metri s.l.m.

Generazioni annuali: una con sfarfallamento a giugno-luglio

Piante nutrici: Phleum pratense, Poa trivialis, Brachipodium sylvaticum, Brachipodium pinnatum, Bromus erectus, Dactylis glomerata.

Mi sembra giusto,dopo aver vinto lo scudetto d'inverno,questa dedica ci voleva proprio..ehehe...bel controluce e ottimi dettagli,solo l'ala in alto e' uscita un po' dal fuoco,ma la posizione non consentiva di fare diversamente.Buona Domenica,Luciano

Ciao Silvio,
Once again fine use of the lighting has led to an excellent capture of galathea. The lateral POV is perfect and taken with superb sharpness and natural colours in a pleasing composition against a natural BG.
I wish we had this species in my country!
Thanks and have a good week,
Ciao,

Hi Silvio,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details and colors of Marble White butterfly. The morning kight is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
