Abstract Some male Pararge aegeria perch in patches of sunlit vegetation in woodland understorey and defend them from other males to increase their probability of obtaining virgin females. Others patrol in search of females. When air temperature is low or in sites where sunlit areas are scarce the predominant behaviour of males is perching. Where sunlit areas are abundant the predominant behaviour is patrolling. In this study, different males adopted different behaviours, depending on their… Expand
