Abstract:

Host-ant specificity of Maculinea alconand habitat requirements were studied on two sites (near Warsaw and in Polesie in eastern Poland) for the first time in Poland and also in this part of Europe. We found M. alconfull-grown larvae and pupae exclusively in M. scabrinodis nests – the commonest ant on both sites. Besides this species, M. rubra, M. ruginodis, M. gallienii were also observed. Our findings are important for its practical conservation of this threatened species in Poland. Observed and predicted changes in habitat management, especially abandonment, affect the structure of vegetation which is followed by changes in ant communities. We predict that overgrowing causes replacement of M. scabrinodis by other more hygrophilous Myrmica species and also makes the worse conditions for G. pneumonanthe – the host-plant of young M. alconlarvae.
