Thecla betulae (Linnaeus, 1758) 

—Another rare butterfly in Montenegro, mentioned only by Bulić et al. (2011). The species was observed by the author in the vicinity of Nikšić. The lack of data might be explained by its late emergence, and the fact that it is a reluctant flier spending most of the time in the canopy. Consequently, it is probably more widespread in Montenegro, especially in the northern part.
