Cacyreus Marshalli38 By Marc Meilhan2012

Author 'Boucher Marc dit de Meilh' (Id 184295 ) : CACYREUS mashalli. Attention, this butterfly is not a Sky ! This is the Cacyreus marshall, who came to southern Africa. This butterfly is part of the order lepidoptera, and belongs to the family of lyceanidae. Sometimes it is called Brown Geranium and Gélargonium (in English : Geranium Bronze.) This butterfly has been met for the first time in the south of France in 1997, in Sicily around the year 2000. I think it's a male here, it does not exceed 15mm. The male is smaller than the female, which can reach up to 28mm scale. We recognize this small butterfly slightly tanned, golden and a species of 'small tails' particularly at the base of the wings and ocelli brown position anal. Its caterpillar, which plays a role of 'chameleon' in order to avoid predators... , is extremely devastating. We found this insect on the rose Geranium, Pelargonium, etc Ph : Marc de Meilhan.

It is actually the brown of pelargoniums and on my balcony, it has wreaked havoc. It is a small butterfly brown color that has a great appetite and is very smart. He devours the pelargonium by attacking the bud, and then also to the flowering stem by eating the interior and leaving only emptiness behind him. It spins constantly at the top of the flower of pelargonium. Nice catch

Hi Marseille... Your message is very nice and I thank you for that. As you say yourself, this insect is a major pest of geraniums and pelargoniums. Despite its small size, it is very detrimental to this topic. Now, you should know that it is the larva which makes many damage, the caterpillar. He lays a lot of where the problem. I had never seen, this is the first time I see this butterfly, which is very nice ; a pity that the time is different by the rain and the cold that sets in... because I would have tried to find others to make photographs. Sincerely, Marc de Meilhan.
