—There are no published records for this species in Montenegro, although it occurs in the neighbouring countries of Serbia ( Jakšić et al. 2013) and Albania ( Verovnik & Popović 2013). The author observed the species in the Kučka Krajina mountain range (Fig. 4.1 and 4.3), flying in meadows near Veruša on June 13th 2017, and in the company of Martin Gascoigne-Pees at Mt. Volušnica and on the Čakor pass (Fig. 4.2 and Fig. 5 View FIGURE 5 ) in the Prokletije mountain range on July 10th and 13th 2017. The species was relatively common and males were seen mud puddling, while females remained near the host plant, Astragalus   sp.
