Geranium Bronze

June 1, 2015

This is the geranium bronze butterfly or Cacyreus marshalli. 

A South African species introduced to Mallorca in the late 1980's. This has spread rapidly and in 2010 was recorded as far east as the Greek island of Corfu.

Now on Symi and laying eggs on my pelargoniums! (Its only plant food of the the larvae.)
