White-edged Rockbrown – Wadi Grosbeak

White-edged Rockbrown Hipparchia parisatisis a large butterfly with its prominent white borders. The species is found from the Western Himalayas to Eastern Turkey and in Oman. The normal habitat is rough hillsides with shrubs and grass. Here the butterflies spend much of their time sitting on rocks or on the bare ground; when disturbed they fly off at great speed but settle again quite soon. During the hottest hours of the day they seek out the shade of caves or overhanging rocks and several specimens may then congregate.
