Small Tortoiseshell / Riđi leptir

Vanessa urticae L. / Aglais urticae L.


I have found in on the meadow in between the river Sava and the Jarun lake. It is found in temperate Europe, Asia Minor, Central Asia, Siberia, China, Mongolia, Korea and Japan. There are a few records from New York City which, however, are believed to have arrived human-assisted.
