Some ten years back we pointed out a wealth of butterfly diversity in a very small gorge situated near the city of Niš, in southern Serbia. The paper also emphasized that growth of Ailanthus trees in the area was a serious threat, because some specific plants grow on exposed rocks in the gorge which are larval foodplants or nectar sources for vario...

Red Lists are very valuable tools in nature conservation at global, continental and (sub-) national scales. In an attempt to prioritise conservation actions for European butterflies, we compiled a database with species lists and Red Lists of all European countries, including the Macaronesian archipelagos (Azores, Madeira and Canary Islands). In tot...

Anthocharis damone Boisduval, 1836 is known from southern Italy, Greece, Republic of Macedonia, Albania and further in the Middle East. At the end of May and beginning of June 2015 it was recorded for the first time in Serbia. A single isolated colony was found 170 km NW from the northernmost known locality in Europe. This record made us review A....
Book
This publication on butterflies is a concise overview of faunistic research performed in Vlasina region. Much to our surprise, big number of species was recorded, quite a lot of them being threatened or protected at national or European level. That imposes a need to conserve such wealth of butterflies and promote it within borders of protected area...

Bradyporus dasypus (IllIger, 1800) is known to inhabit the eastern parts of the Balkan Peninsula but the knowledge on its distribution is largely based on old literature. In Serbia, we could not confrm this cricket from localities reported during the previous centuries. It probably demises here, limiting the range to only a few recent populations i...

Although the Vlasina plateau has proved to be an interesting area hosting diverse and unique flora and fauna, its butterflies have not been thoroughly studied. Consolidating several known records and our field observations, a total of 101 butterfly species were listed for this region. The area hosts a number of important species to be conserved und...

The Stara Planina Mts. region in Serbia has already been recognized as one of the most butterfly rich regions in Europe with good populations of several rare and threatened species. However, so far the southern part of Stara Planina has been poorly studied. We therefore focused our field surveys on that region visiting 22 sites over a period of sev...
