Base gallery. Upperside. Pinned specimen.

Photo, and identified by: Vasiliy Feoktistov. Image without retouching at the website

Date and time, location shooting/catching: 2012-07-23 00:00:00, Russia, Vladimir reg., Petushinsky distr., near Starye Omutishchi village. leg. Feoktistov V.I.

Photographer's comment: Основным условием существования вида в моем регионе стоит считать наличие в биотопе кормового растения: "Ракитника" Cytisus sp. В Мещёрской низменности, где ракитник растет повсюду в сосновых лесах бабочка встречается в массе и дает 2 поколения. Вид занесен в "Красную Книгу Московской Области" (3-я категория. Редкий вид.), что считаю абсурдом так как надо прежде всего охранять биотопы. Будет ракитник - будет и бабочка.
