It doesn't take a rocket scientist. we should not tresspass upon obvious things:)

And wee try it the top down :) I propose to begin with Lycaenidae!

Well, I was thinking like this: what similar species is a closest to Kharkov? If they don't migrate, then should interrogate the author, if he happened to visit the South Caucasus or Middle Asia when was a child ;)

Everything is possible in theory... Even bear happens to fly... :) At least two things are confusing here: first, it was never noticed in the Black Sea Coast as against well-known migrants such as L. boeticus and L. pirithous, not to mention even more northern regions (please correct me If I'm ignorant), second, is this really Ch. galba? Similar to some extent, far from being sure though.

Why Chilades galba couldn't really fly from the Caucasus to Kharkov?

Any conclusion is needed.

I have no doubts about the label since I caught this butterfly myself, in 1976, when I was 14 and spent all the summer in Berezov Mineral Waters resort, Kharkov district. Anyway, opinions are welcome.

Yes, something of Euchrysops genus or Chilades, but how can it be found in Ukraine? :)

Igor, would you please say something about this butterfly? Where and who caught it, to what collection and so on.

05.04.2011 1:29, Eugene Karolinskiy

Even if it was pirithous on the photo, there still would be huge doubts about label, Imho...

05.04.2011 1:27, Eugene Karolinskiy

Hey, we're not identifying it as "what do we have similar in Europe?" ;)) The label was definitely mistaken.

05.04.2011 1:08, Alexandr Zhakov

There is no any more similar in Europe. If label was mistaken, then yes. :(

05.04.2011 0:50, Eugene Karolinskiy

Imho, this is not miracle at all, just mistaken labels (sorry to the author...). It's not pirithous. Either not Leptotes.

05.04.2011 0:07, Alexandr Zhakov

That's a miracle! It looks mostly like Leptotes pirithous and if it's so, that's really miracle!
