Chalk-hill Blue

The Chalkhill Blue (Lysandra coridon) is found on chalk downland, although limestone downland is also used. The adult butterfly is most-often seen in bright sunshine, where the ground may appear to shimmer with the activity of hundreds, if not thousands, of males searching for a mate just a few inches above the ground

The Distribution Of This ButterflyEdit

The distribution of this species follows the distribution of Horseshoe Vetch which, in turn, follows the distribution of chalk and limestone grassland. This species is therefore restricted to England, south east of a line from the Wash to the Severn estuary

The Habitat Of This ButterflyEdit

This species lives in discrete colonies where its food plant, Horseshoe Vetch, is found in abundance. It is also a warmth-loving butterfly, and is typically found on sheltered, south-facing hillsides.
