Grecian Copper butterfly - Polyommatus ottomanus Lefèbvre, 1830 Quite controversial information concerning the scientific name of this butterfly. According to some sources it is Lycaena ottomana, others show the accepted scientific name to be Polyommatus ottomanus. I decided to create the record as the last one, according to ITIS, Catalogue of Life 2015.  <br />
