Olgunlar, ARTVİN ● Turkey

Description: This is a rather variable species with a wingspan of 22–32 mm (not always particularly “large”). As with most Pyrgus species it has dark brown wings with pale chequered margins, well-spaced white spotting on the forewing and much fainter markings on the hindwings.
The underside is green olive, with white blotches.

Biology: P. Alveus is on the wing from June to August with one or two generations produced each year.
The larva has been recorded feeding on Agrimonia, Helianthemum, Polygala, Potentilla, Fragaria vesca and Rubus.

Habitat: Flowery alpine grassland, up to 3900 m.

Distribution: Most of continental Europe (absent from Denmark and practically all European islands including Great Britain, Ireland, Azores, Balearic Islands, Channel Islands, Canary Islands, Crete, Cyprus, Iceland), Siberia, Eastern Anatolia (Turkey), Altai, NE China.
