Butterfly of Czech Republic

4-40 PM - 25th January 2010

Czech Republic

This country offers a wonderful diversity of limestone meadows, high mountains, pristine beech and conifer forests, and lowland wetlands rich in birdlife. We travel from the White Carpathians, along the borders of the Czech Republic, through the subalpine, and up to alpine regions in the High Tatras, finishing on very warm southern slopes of the Slovak Karst.

The butterflies that grace the Czech Republic are more varied and more frequent than those we see in England. Some are quite plain – butterflies from the woods in a range of browns and subtle dappled. Others are lighter - large and small brimstones, frittilaries, swallowtails, others are familiar like the many peacocks and tortoiseshells.

A comparative study and research was conducted in the country to know the population, increase in the species and habitats for the less migrants, extinct species, recent arrivals and extremely rare species. The team found that there was an increase in 15 and 12 species, respectively. Main conclusion Altitude shifts in the distribution of Czech butterflies are already detectable on the coarse scales of standard distribution maps. The increasing species do not show any consistent pattern in habitat affiliations, conservation status and mountain against. non mountain distribution

In total there are 161 native species of butterfly in Czech Republic according to Czech Etymologists, most of the 141 species of day butterflies, who range in the Czech Republic, live in the capital or its close surroundings. And some species, like Eastern Baton Blue or Grayling even have their last hopeful populations.
