Argynnis ino (Rottemburg, 1775)   

Name in Tolman & Lewington (1997): Brenthis ino

Range: Temperate Eurasia.

Distribution in Bulgaria: Very local from sea level up to 1200 m. Recorded from Rila, Rhodopi, Stara Planina, C Bulgaria and the southern Black Sea coast including Mt. Strandzha.

Habitat: Generally damp meadows, but some populations such as the one discovered by myself in Stara Planina north of Sliven, inhabit dry warm flowery glades (Kolev 2004).

Bionomics: One generation from June to early August. Larval host-plants: Filipendula, Rubus and Sanguisorba (Rosaceae) (Tolman & Lewington 1997).

Conservation status: Considered very rare and local, but in some populations can be common and apparently its actual distribution in Bulgaria is much wider than presently known. More research on its status is needed. IUCN category: Data Deficient.
