What did these points are not in the MO? From here and and.

Well, the area something to do with it?) Then at the points that are interesting to you, because you've been there or at the level of the natural boundaries of the spread (and their modifications).

Well, how's this for?
I live here))))
I spend my own observation.
And the point I prefer to find our own (do not ride on someone else's).
And I love the passion for wandering through the woods (the present, not the park) and think :)

I'm surprised that you even interested in the Red Book of the field. Why do you need it?

I agree that it is really a rare species. Read in the QC status: "3rd category. Rare species" ........
Local. Wow. But to rare .....
You have to see it with my own eyes how much there to stop believing allegations rarity. There's a clean, virgin forest where a lot of mushrooms and berries: blueberries, blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.And throughout the array of any "sanitary" cutting in view of a specific object, which is located there. And an array of rather big: it is huge indeed .... And everywhere flies Egeria .....

The female with the same terms as the male placed on this link:
I chose again to the point in order to collect a series of species.
The goal successfully achieved and collected series:

Unfortunately generation is already on the decline of butterflies and consequently the state is poor (
The most interesting thing is that the males sit by one at a certain height above the ground and rather zealously guard their territory from attacks by attacking everyone indiscriminately insects: bees, flies, beetles (still one)not only butterflies :)
Females are at the same time kept close to the ground and rather inactive.
It is also interesting still is that butterflies are found directly in the forest, but not in the meadows, forest edges, meadows and other open areas.It is kind of interesting :)
I repeat: there is kind of very numerous and very strange why the Noginsk district is not mentioned until now in the Red Book of Defense:
But this book, I did not trust every day more (((
But before agreeing on this species in particular .....
