Pyronia bathseba


In this spotting on a Cistus albidus plant. It lives in steep and warm bushy areas, up to 1700 meters. Common and relatively abundant in all types of forest habitats. In the most dense, it usually looks for clear areas such as roadsides. It flies from May to August, one generation a year. The laying of the eggs is carried out by dropping them in flight one by one in the vegetation. The caterpillar is light brown or gray in color with black spots on the sides.
