Carcharodus alceae (Hatmi Zıpzıbı) [Eng. Mallow Skipper]

Hatmi Zıpzıbı 22-30 mm kanat genişliği ile kk boyutlu bir kelebektir. Erkeğin staraf zemin rengi gri kahvedir. Aık ve koyu kahve lekeler, karakteristik bir desen şeklinde, dış kenara paralel bandlar şekillendirir. n kanatta kk, parlak beyaz benekler bulunur. Arka kanadın dış kenarı olduka girintili ıkıntılıdır. n kanadın alt tarafı, st tarafına benzer olmakla birlikte koyu lekelerden yoksundur. Arka kanadın zemin rengi nispeten daha aık kahve olup, dağınık beyaz lekelidir. Dişisi erkeğine benzer olmakla birlikte, oğunlukla daha byk olup daha aık renkli bir alt tarafa sahiptir.

Esasen Orta ve Gney Avrupalı bir tr olmakla birlikte, dağılışı Kıbrıs adası dahil Trkiye ve Kazakistana, kuzey Hindistana kadar uzanır. Ergin kelebekler Şubatda (bazen Ocakta) grlmeye başlar ve Kasıma kadar peş peşe nesiller halinde uarlar. Gz dnemi esnasında sayısal aıdan dikkate değer bir atış vardır. Kk tırtıllar halinde kışı geirirler. Tırtıl konak bitkileri Malvaceae (Ebegmecigiller, Hatmigiller) ailesine dahil eşitli trlerdir. Kıbrıs adasında, Hatmi Zıpzıbının Malva sylvestris (Adi Ebegmeci) zerine yumurtladığı kaydedilmiştir. Tırtılları, konak bitki yaprak kenarlarının katlanması ile meydana gelen koruyucu bir barınak iinde yaşar ve gelişirler.

Makilik, aık herdem yeşil yumuşak yapraklı alılıklar, frigana (olduka dşk boylu alılık ve otluklar), zirai alanlar, nehir vadileri ve ormanlık alanlar gibi ok eşitli habitatlarda deniz seviyesinden 2500 m irtifalara kadar kaydedilmiştir. Ebegmecinin yetiştiği tarla ve yol kenarlarına yakın olacak şekilde, dşk irtifalarda ve tepelik blgelerde daha yayındır. oğu kez aynı trden bireylerle birlikte hızlı zıplama hareketleriyle yere yakın uarlar ve kanatlar neredeyse her zaman aık şekilde yere konarlar. Yerde, dallarda veya kuru otlar arasında dinlenirler. eşitli ieklerden beslenirler, gzn Dittrichia (=Inula) viscosa (Anduz Otu) iekleri daha ekici gelir.

*****************************

Mallow Skipper is a small butterfly with a wingspan of 22-30 mm. The upperside ground colour of the male is grey-brown. Light and dark brown marks form bands parallel to the outer margin, in a characteristic pattern. On the forewing there are small, shiny white spots. The outer margin of the hindwing is strongly dentate. The underside of the forewing is similar to the upperside but lacks the darker markings. The ground colour of the hindwing is a lighter brown with scattered white marks. The female is similar to the male, but is usually larger and has a lighter-coloured underside.

Indeed it is a species of central and southern Europe, its range extends through Turkey, including Cyprus island, and Kazakstan to northern India. The adult butterflies begin to emerge in February (sometimes in January) and are on the wing until November, in successive broods. There is a noticeable increase in numbers during the autumn period. Overwinters as a small larva. The larval host-plants are various species of the Malvaceae family. In Cyprus island, Mallow skipper has been recorded laying on Malva sylvestris (Common Mallow). The larva lives and develops in a protective shelter, which it constructs by folding together the edges of a leaf of the host-plant.

It is recorded in a wide range of habitats such as maquis, garrigue, phrygana, agricultural land, river valleys and forest, from sea level to 2500 m elavations. It is very common in lowland and semi-mountainous areas, close to crops and road verges where the Common Mallow grows. Flies with a rapid, whirring motion, often in the company of others of its species. Remains close to the ground and almost always alights with its wings open. Rests on the ground, on branches, or amongst dry grass. Feeds from a variety of flowers and in autumn is attracted to those of Dittrichia (=Inula) viscosa (False yellowhead).

Hi dear Bayram,
Very harmonious capture, with so sharp details. Mallow skippers are so well camouflaged in the dry vegetation. But they couldn't escape to your voyeur's eyes ;)
This Olympus was a good camera I see! Have a nice day,

Naturalidad en los colores y oportunidad por el momento.
Buena semana Bayram: Josep Ignasi.

Hello little bro,

Great pov, dof and sharpness.

Nice work and meeting.
Gert

Ciao Bayram, fantastic maiting couple of lovely little skippers, great macro with beautiful blurry BG, splendid sharpness, fine details, wonderful light and dood natural colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hola Bayram

Nueva parejita muy bien fotografiada, perfecta nitidez y colores calidos muy agradables, perfecta composicin en casi una sola tonalidad, fantastica. Buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

sevgili kk kardeşim

Thanks for showing this beautiful couple - the female quite different - with a nice colour-coordinated frame.

Did you use a flash?

Apparently Gediz is quite an important wetland: did you go there for a specific reason?

As I mentioned somewhere else - your filing system is number 1 - to find all these photos after 2 years plus the notes...

I often wonder if these butterflies are very delicate?!? i.e. can they still fly after being touched, the scales disturbed? You can see, I have never had anything to do with butterflies after living for over 20 years in an area without flowers...

But here at the dam I have sen already lots of buds - so may be - I'll see butteflies as well!

iyi geceler sevgili arkadaşım.
kk kardeşim

Hello Bayram,
Another fine shot in your wonderful series of lovemaking butterflies. Again you captured exceptional detail and beautiful colors. I like the spotted wing patterns and natural colors. We have a lot of Skippers here in Ohio, but I have never seen one quite like yours. Great work!!

Gnaydin Bayram dostum,
You may be right about the ID of this pair of Skippers in copulo but it is often difficult to distinguish Carcharodus species.
This is a fine capture of what seems to be C. alceae from your collection, the sharpness and lighting helping to make them stand out from the OOF but similarly coloured BG.
Thanks and have a good weekend, MF,
Ivan

Hi Bayram. I have captured a few mating butterflies have yet to come close to mating skippers. This is truly amazing and how diligent and serious you are with your work. Beautiful lighting with vivid details of the wings' markings. Love the tone and sharpness from your excellent glass. Well done MF and have a great day shooting. Best regards - Jusni

Hello Bayram,

WOW! Somptueux mon ami. Une image exceptionnelle.
Ces deux papillons ont adopts le principe du camlon, couleur vgtation environnante.
Une composition soyeuse. Mes compliments.
