I am at the moment reviewing a report on this butterfly and the report
alleges that this species is not found in drier habitats with Rumex but is
to be expected only in wet habitats.  This is not entirely consistent with
my observations.  Has anyone else found Lycaena dione in non-wet habitats
with Rumex ?? Details appreciated if you have. Thank you.
