GBD Remarks:

Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) is one of the most diferce order of insets and, hence, animals. Butterflies are duirnal Lepidoptera from the families Papilionidae, Pieridae, Nymphalidae, Lycaenidae, Riodinidae, and hesperidae. Altogether there are ca. 17,000 species of this group described, much less than other, mostly nocturnal families of Lepidoptera ("moths"). Georgia has 31 species of Hesperidae, 80 Lycaenidae, 94 Nymphalidae (including 46 Nymphalinae and 48 Satyrinae), 29 Pieridae, and 8 Papilionidae, i.e. ca. 1.5% of the worldwide butterfly diversity. This gives a good option for use of butterflies as indicators of the condition in natural terrestrial habitats.

პეპლები ერთ-ერთი ყველაზე მრავალფეროვანი მწერების (და, ამდენად, ცხოველების) რიგია.  დღის პეპლები აერთიანებენ ოჯახ Papilionidae, Pieridae, Nymphalidae, Lycaenidae, Riodinidae, და hesperidae-ს წარმომადგენლებს. ამ ჯგუფის დაახლ. 17,000 სახეობაა აღწერილი, საიდანაც საქართველოში გვხვდება 220-ზე მეტი (31Hesperidae, 80 Lycaenidae, 94 Nymphalidae (მათ შორის 46 Nymphalinae და 48 Satyrinae), 29 Pieridae, და 8 Papilionidae) - ესე იგი მსოფლიო დღის პეპლების დაახლ. 1.5%. ეს მრავალფეროვნება საკმარისად მაღალია იმისათვის რომ საქართველოს დღის პეპლების მრავალფეროვნება გამოყენებულ იქნას ხმელეთის ჰაბიტატების მდგომარეობის მონიტორინგისთვის.
