Cupido alcetas (Hoffmannsegg, 1804) 

—Only one published record for this species exists. Müting (1973) reported the species for the area around Budva, where the author has undertaken many surveys and has only observed Cupido argiades Pallas  , a species that is not mentioned in Müting’s paper. This fact would suggest a questionable determination by Müting. However, several worn specimens of C. alcetas  were observed by Franeta & Gascoigne-Pees in the Đalovića gorge  on July 14th 2017. The species is probably very rare in Montenegro and most likely only inhabits the very north of the country.
