Moorland Clouded Yellow

(Colias palaeno)

 

Male 29/06/08 Doubs (25)

Female 29/06/08 Doubs (25)

The Moorland Clouded Yellow is quite an unusual species which flies only in upland areas around peat bogs where its food plant Vaccinium uliginosum grows. At this site in the Doubs the habitat was very particular and no other species of butterfly was present except this rare one!
