      1. That's because you're a child of summer (dutch expression, doesn't translate well) :) Posted 3 years ago
        1. I think I've only seen it near the Danube river. In spring we prefer to go to the South where it is warmer. Posted 3 years ago

The Map is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. It is common throughout the lowlands of central and eastern Europe, and is expanding its range in western Europe.

In the UK this species is a very rare vagrant, but there have also been several unsuccessful – and now illegal – attempts at introducing this species over the past 100 years or so: in the Wye Valley in 1912, the Wyre Forest in the 1920s, South Devon 1942, Worcester 1960s, Cheshire 1970s, South Midlands 1990s.
