Maculinea alcon ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775)

I have never observed this species. However there are a few records taken in 2006 and 2007 in Volchansk distr. (thanks to Dima Kovalchuk for this information). There are also specimens in the Natural History Museum of Kharkov National University (two males, Kuryazh, VI/25/1886, leg. unknown; ID confirmed by genitalia investigation).

The literature data concerning this species is as follows: not shown in [Pljushtch et al., 2006]; in [Moskalenko, 1991] listed as rare.
