Erebia manto (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775)  

—This European endemic has rarely been recorded in the Balkans, and is known only from Mt. Vlašić and Mt. Trebević in Bosnia ( Rebel 1904; Sijarić 1982). For Montenegro it was recorded by Koçak (1989), Jakšić & Pešić (1995) and Jakšić (2003b). More precisely, it was observed in two localities in the Prokletije mountain range, namely Čakor pass based on one male specimen collected on July 13th 1978 ( Koçak 1989) and another male on July 18th 1988 ( Jakšić & Pešić 1995) and from the Karanfili massif, near Gusinje ( Jakšić 2003b). The species has been reported for the fauna of Serbia ( Jakšić & Pešić 1995; Jakšić 2003b; Jakšić et al. 2013) since the eastern ranges of Mt. Čakor were within the boundaries of the Federal Republic of Jugoslavia in 1995, when the paper was published. However, currently Čakor pass is within Montenegrin territory. The author along with Martin Gascoigne-Pees visited Čakor pass on July 14th 2017, however the species was not observed. Several entomologists have also visited this mountain pass, but have not reported E. manto   (Weiss 1975; Floriani & Saldaitis pers. comm.) The status of E. manto   in the Prokletije range has yet to be confirmed, since there are no photographic records and the author is not aware of any preserved specimens.
