Green Underside Blue

Inhabiting dry habitats: slopes, hollow-ways, railway embankments, and dykes, it flies mostly in a single generation from May through July. The caterpillar feeds on legumes, primarily Dyer’s Broom and Yellow Sweet Clover. It crucially relies on traditionally farmed steppe habitats, which, unfortunately, are disappearing fast from our landscape.
