The Sultan

Are Monarch butterflies found in Turkey?
 
 We asked expert and author of the Butterflies of Turkey,Dr. Ahmet Baytas ......
 
Here is part of his response :
 
"Monarch is not found in Turkey, but there is a similar butterfly, which is a close relative and which belongs to the same genus: Danaus chrysippus, Plain Tiger. 
 
The Turkish common name of this butterfly is Sultan (which you know is a ruler like a monarch).  It also utilizes milkweeds, among other plants, as foodplant.  This butterfly is only found along the warmer coastal provinces of the Aegean and the Mediterranean ...It is unlikely that it will ever reach Malatya, though it has been expanding its range.
 
Let me know if I can be of any further help.  I am aware of the Monarch Teacher Network...Great..."
