Britensia circe (El rey moro)

 

Pertenece a la subfamila de los satiridae, de gran tamaño con una envergadura alar de 60mm. en los machos y hasta 70 mm. en las hembras. Esta es una mariposa en que el dimorfismo sexual queda relegado exclusivamente al tamaño corporal, siendo las hembras un poco más grandes que los machos. Habita en claros situados en altitudes inferiores a los dos mil metros, soleados y más bien secos.

Rey moro.

      Al igual que la mayor parte de los satíridos, la kanetisa  o britensia circe es un lepidóptero con una capacidad tal de mimetización que, en estado de reposo, puede pasar desapercibido al ojo humano, confundido entre las irregularidades de la corteza de un árbol, entre la hojarasca o las piedras.
Cuando no vuela mantiene las alas plegadas, mostrando únicamente el reverso de las posteriores, tras las que se ocultan las delanteras. 

      Este satirizo se reconoce fácilmente por las bandas claras que sobre un fondo oscuro, casi negro, atraviesan las alas, quedando interrumpidas en la cara superior, cerca del borde anterior, donde presentan un ocelo negro, con una manchas gris en el interior, rodeado de blanco.  Por el reverso de las alas tienen una coloración gris amarronada, y la franja blanca es más irregular. El ocelo es también visible.
Britensia circe
      De una única generación anual, vuela durante los meses de julio a agosto. Esta mariposa es capaz estridular o producir un sonido parecido al de algunos saltamontes, audible con claridad a varios metros de distancia.
