Distribution and biological peculiarities in Armenia: This monotypic species is distributed in Caucasus and Transcaucasia. In Armenia it occupies wide variety of deciduous forests, but also occurs in wet meadows, at the elevation range from 1000 to 2400 m a.s.l. The host plant is not surely determined for the species although in laboratory the larvae have been fed by Plantago spp. The species gives one generation per annum, having butterflies on wing from early July till mid August.
Population dynamics: The species is rather common to uncommon within typical habitat, and its population trend demonstrates stability in 2003-2013 (p>0.05). It appears that Transcaucasian Fritillary's host plant is not affected by grazing and mowing, which also confirms hypothesis about Plantago spp as the host plant of the species.
Conservation measures: The species is not included in the Global, European, and National Red Lists, as well as in CITES and Bern Conventions. The preliminary assessment of its conservation status for Armenia suggests it as Least Concern. The distribution range of the species lays in number of protected areas, Emerald Sites, and Prime Butterfly Areas, and it appears that the species doesn't require any specific conservation measures, however it is important to continue its monitoring as rather specialized representative of forests and meadows. Also it is important to mention that Transcaucasian Fritillary is a desired object for butterfly-watchers, and therefore can be a flagship species in development of this branch of wildlife tourism.
