An Odyssey of Butterflies, Greece 2018.
Written by Jos   

Balkan Marbled White

 

 

With key species flying at different times of the year, this trip was broken into two segments – a spring trip targeting False Apollo and Southern Festoon in the north of the country, then an early summer trip to the mountain massifs of Parnassus and Chelmos in the south, hoping to find Europe's smallest butterfly, the Grass Jewel, plus a rich abundance of and diversity of other species.

 Scarce Fritillary

 

 

Only in Lithuania for the first half of the month, but should be top of the season and hopefully take my year list over and above the magical 100 mark. Superb start with a fantastic Scarce Fritillary in the west, plus Scarce Large Blue, Marbled Fritillary and more Ilex Hairstreaks.

Black Hairstreak

 

 

A stunning month of impressive butterflies! Among the highlights, a flight of Twinspot Fritillaries, several Nickerl's Fritillaries and Cranberry Fritillaries and good numbers of Black Hairstreaks and Ilex Hairstreaks. Additionally, large numbers of Green-underside Blues, several Alcon Blues and a good range of other species such as Poplar Admirals and Woodland Browns.
