Description

The Cassandra (Zerynthia cassandra) is a splendid butterfly endemic to Italian territory recently also found in the Republic of San Marino. Very localized and rare everywhere, it is in decline in much of its distribution area where it remains in small populations often distant from each other. Its presence is closely linked to that of Aristolochia, the only plant on which its caterpillars feed. It is mainly found in humid environments, banks of streams, uncultivated lands and edges of cultivated fields, from the plains up to around 1000 meters above sea level. Typically spring species, it flies from mid-March to the end of May depending on the altitude; has a single annual generation. In Europe it is protected by the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC and by the Bern Convention; in our territory by Law 19 July 2021 n. 137 “Protection of wildlife in the Republic of San Marino”.
