Clouded Yellow Butterfly on Knapweed
Colias croceus is one of the most-widespread species in Europe. In Asia, its range extends into central Siberia in the north and barely into India in the south it is not found in Central Asia. The Clouded Yellow is primarily an immigrant to the UK, originating from southern Europe and northern Africa. In the UK they can be seen on the south coast almost every year in varying numbers, and regularly breed there. Occurrence in the rest of the UK varies considerably from year to year. A truly migratory European butterfly, this species is famous for occasional mass migrations and subsequent breeding, which are often referred to in the United Kingdom as "clouded yellow years". Notable clouded yellow years include 1877, 1947, 1983, 1992, 1994, 1996 and 2000.
