Erebia sudetica liorana de Lesse, 1947

Sudeten Ringlet
Le Moiré des Sudètes

Wingspan: 34-36mm

A univoltine and very local species flying from June to August. Not a species of the Lot but it is recorded from the adjacent Auvergne where it is found around Puy Mary and the Puy-de-Dome to 2200m and because of that is included here.

The larva feeds on Anthoxanthum odoratum.
