Red Book Rendezvous

Erebia sudetica

Red List Category: Vulnerable.
Major Threats : The main threats are intensified grazing and abandonment. Considering its limited distribution, the Sudeten Ringlet may become threatened in the long term by climate change. As the species is not treated in the Climatic Risk Atlas there is no information on the possible change of the climate envelope.
Conservation Actions: The species is listed on the Habitats Directive and Bern Convention. More research is needed on the distribution and ecology of the species. Suitable habitats should be protected and appropriately managed. The effects of conservation actions should be monitored by a Butterfly Monitoring Scheme. In the Czech Republic, Poland and Romania, the species only occurs in protected areas.
