Xhezair Abdija, Nexhbedin Beadini, Sheqibe Beadini


Research on Butterfly (Rhopalocera) fauna in the mountain massif of Sharr, Pollog valley and the National Park of Mavrovo is being explored for several years now by different researchers. With special emphasis, the researchers consider that it should be explored again because this group requires a dimension-specific study with the particular research character on finding eventually any new possible species for the territory in research. Research so far has been done to over 1000 specimens belonging to the family Lycaenidae. Until now, there have been more than 3 subfamilies with 21 genera and 42 species. Samples were collected at 18 stations of different heights above sea level and different habitats. For each survey station were recorded data on habitat type, such as the sea level Altitude (?), geographic coordinate Latitude (?), and length (?) Longitude.

Keywords: Butterfly (Rhopalocera) fauna, species in research, the zoogeographical distribution of species, Sharr Mountain, Macedonia.
