ELYMNIINI AND MELANARGIINI (SATYRINAE)

All the photos are taken in pure natural conditions and depict fully free butterflies and moths. Some b/w shots was made in captivity, that can be indicated in each peculiar case upon request. I add some main synonims, unfortunately, in many cases the nomenclature, especially generic, is still unstable and I am not able to adduce all the circulating synonyms (especially in moths). The main regions are indicated where pictures were taken.
