The genus Maculinea is confined to the Palaearctic region. Four species occur from Central Europe to China and/or Japan, while M. rebeli is probably restricted to Europe. Although within many Western European countries the distribution of the species is well known, there are still many questions. The exact status of some of the species is still unclear and the amount of decline in this century is unknown. In Asia, especially within the nations of the former USSR, the distributions of species… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Worldwide distribution of saproxylic beetles of the genus Cucujus Fabricius, 1775 (Coleoptera: Cucujidae)
TLDR
This paper characterises the distribution of 10 known species of Cucujus, and presents new records of C. bicolor from Myanmar – the southernmost occurrence of the genus. Expand
The Dusky Large Blue - Maculinea nausithous kijevensis (Sheljuzhko, 1928) in the Transylvanian basin: New data on taxonomy and ecology
TLDR
External characters of these populations completely agree with the original description of Maculinea nausithous kijevensis and show some small but constant differences against the Central European nominotypic populations, so it is believed that this subspecies has a wider Euro-Siberian distribution. Expand
Demographic parameters of two sympatric Maculinea species in a Romanian site (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
TLDR
The results of the first mark-release-recapture (MRR) study on populations of Maculinea teleius and M. nausithous suggest that the populations of the studied species are relatively well conserved. Expand
New findings of the butterfly Phengaris teleius at the border between Hungary and Serbia (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
TLDR
New information Phengaris teleius was recorded for the first time in four localities in Hungary and in additional locality in Serbia, suggesting that the local populations are more interconnected than previousely thought. Expand
DISTRIBUTION AND THREATS OF PHENGARIS TELEIUS (LEPIDOPTERA: LYCAENIDAE) IN NORTHERN SERBIA
2 , Đurđevic, Aca 1 , The paper provides an overview on the distribution of recently discovered Scarce Large Blue (Phengaris (Maculinea) teleius) in northern Serbia (Selevenj Sands, Ludas Lake andExpand
Distribution and habitats of Phengaris (Maculinea) butterflies and population ecology of Phengaristeleius in China
TLDR
This paper investigates the distribution and habitats of the Chinese Phengaris species (of the subgenus Maculinea) and hopes its population structure, adult behaviour and movement were studied through mark–release–recapture methods in the Qinling Mountains of Taibai County to improve the knowledge on the population ecology of P.teleius.

Challenging Species Distribution Models: The Case of Maculinea nausithous in the Iberian Peninsula
Maculinea nausithousis the most endangered Iberian butterfly, being included in the Bern and Habitat directives and in the Spanish Red Book for invertebrates. We map its potential distribution in theExpand
Maculinea nausithous Exploits Myrmica scabrinodis in Transylvania: Unusual Host Ant Species of a Myrmecophilous Butterfly in an Isolated Region (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae; Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
TLDR
Observations suggest that, like the habitat, the host ant of these isolated populations of the myrmecophilous Dusky Large Blue butterfly essentially differs from other central European M. nausithous populations studied, which use exclusively Myrmica rubra. Expand
Population ecology of the endangered butterflies Maculinea teleius and M. nausithous and the implications for conservation
TLDR
The results indicate that populations of both species are typically stable within their sites, but there is little inter-site mobility and thus landscape corridors seem necessary to enhance metapopulation viability. Expand
Myrmica rubra (Hymenoptera: Formicidae): the first data on host-ant specificity of Maculinea nausithous (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) in Hungary
TLDR
Results confirm that M. rubra is, in general, the host ant of M. nausithous, and a huge density for predacious butterfly species. Expand

TLDR
Ecological features of the lycaenid species listed in the Spanish Lepidoptera Red Data Book are described and some important populations of the most vulnerable species could be preserved through the protection of target areas. Expand
Distribution of Maculinea rebeli and hostplant use on sites along the river Danube
TLDR
Maculinea rebeli (or Glaucopsyche rebeli) is one of the species listed in the Red Data Book of Bavaria in the highest category and requires special attention in management and the larval foodplant is Gentiana cruciata and the host ant, Myrmica schencki. Expand
