A Year Of Lithuanian Butterflies
Written by Jos   

Based on observations in 2016, the purpose of this list is to provide a detailed analysis of a single year's observations to serve as a broad outline of the species that may be encountered by an observer in Lithuania, with notes detailing flight dates, approximate locations and abundance.

 

Marbled Fritillary

 

Whilst not a comprehensive list of all species ever recorded in Lithuania, observations do cover 109 of the 126 species currently on the Lithuanian list. For completeness, an appendix of the remaining 17 species (mostly rare vagrants or historically-occurring species) will be added.

Record Breakers. October 2016.

Large Copper

 

 

 

Amazing weather to start the month - positively tropical at 20 C, the result being still numerous butterflies on the wing. Amongst 16 species, unprecedented records of Chestnut Heath and two Large Coppers, neither species ever recorded so late in the season in Lithuania.

 Turquoise Blue

 

Travelling between 24-27 August 2016, this short trip was timed to coincide with the relatively brief period each year that Brown Bears emerge onto the open slopes of the Cantabrian Mountains to feed on berries. The plan was to look for the bears morning and evening, then spend the days searching for late season butterflies, this proving very successful with many species seen.
