Abstract

Research of diurnal butterflies fauna in the surroundings of city of Ozalj lasted four years, as of 2004 to 2008. Research was conducted on four localities with different ecological, geographical, pedological and hydrological characteristics. Butterflies were collected from the beginning of April to the end of October using entomology net. After the preparation, the butterflies were classified by standard methods. In all the locations, 62 sorts of butterflies were found and they can be sorted into five family groups. The most common day butterflies belong to the Nymphalidae family group. More spices were found in moist areas rather then in dry. A zoogeographic analysis was made witch showed that most of the spices (91,93%) belong to the Palearktic region. A fauna analysis was also done that revealed that in this region eight spices of butterflies from the Red list of the Republic of Croatia were found.
