Distribution and biological peculiarities in Armenia: The species can be found from the Balkans, through Anatolia up to Iran. In Armenia there is an endemic subspecies H. f. persiscana (Verity, 1937) recorded, which inhabits mainly semi-deserts and dry mountain steppes of Southern and South-eastern parts of the country, at the elevation range from 800 to 1500 m a.s.l. The larval host plants of the species are Festuca spp, and Poa spp. The Freyer's Grayling is one of the latest species which flies from late July till late October in single generation.
Population dynamics: The species is rate even within typical habitat. Although it appears that the species' population is not changing the rare density and scarce data make computation of its population during 2003-2013 trend hardly possible.
Conservation measures: The species is not included in the Global and Armenian Red Lists, as well as in Appendixes of CITES and Bern Conventions, but is included in Red Book of European Butterflies as Least Concern. Most probably, the status should be designated for the species in Armenia, however it is made with a reservation of necessity of further monitoring, which can clarify the situation with Freyer's Grayling better. The species is recorded in some of Protected Areas and Emerald Sites, also it is presented in Agarak, Meghri, Kaladash, Shvanidzor, Gnisheek, and Ourtsadzor Prime Butterfly Areas. It appears that there is no necessity for further conservation measures, however it is very important to understand its population trend as this can through a light on the real situation with the species.
