31:st of July 2011
Sweden´s first Lesser Purple Emperor (Apatura ilia)appeared was found in a garden outside Stockholm and shown to visitors by the very kind finder Petter Simonsson during Sunday afternoon. It was around 20 years ago Sweden got a new Butterfly species. Ilias is known to expand northwards on the Baltic side with several finds in Finland the last years.
