What are temperate butterflies?
The word ‘temperate’ is used to describe those areas on Earth where
temperature is modest. The wide variety of flowers in grassland and woodland clearings means that there are plenty of butterflies.
The caterpillars of grassland butterflies feed on grass found in meadows, and health lands. There are many varieties of grassland butterflies. Most popular among them are meadow brown, the Aphrodite, the purple-shot copper, the Adonis blue etc. The wall butterfly is another
grass feeding species commonly found in Europe,
Asia and Africa.
