On the occurrence of Coenonympha hero L. (Lepidoptera - Satyridae) in the High Tatras
Occurrence of the species Coenonympha hero was reviewed, which had not been reported from Slovakia for a long time and was considered extinct from the fauna of Slovakia. The species was found in the surroundings of Dolny Smokovec, High Tatras, in the years 1983, 1991 and 1993. The localities where it occurs are found in an area that is considerably influenced by human activities. It is urgent to solve detailed questions on the distribution and biology in this region. According to the results of a further study measures should be taken to preserve the populations of Coenonympha hero in the High Tatras.
