Geranium Bronze Butterfly Cacyreus marshalli 

A South African Lycaenid, a tailed Blue, the first time offered by WWB. The larvae feed on Geranium and Pelargonium, wild and cultivated, mainly in the flower buds but also the leaves.  The species first appeared in Europe around 1990 and has spread around much of the Mediterranean, but also found in summer further north. There is apparently no dormant stage, but it is considered that it cannot survive in the wild in places where the winter is cold. This is an opportunity to try a new species and learn more about it.
