The distribution and population viability of 10 species of Lepidoptera (Callimorpha quadripunctaria, Coenonympha oedippus, Colias myrmidone, Erannis ankeraria, Erebia calcaria, Euphydryas maturna, Lycaena dispar, Maculinea nausithous, M. teleius, Zerynthia polyxena) listed in Annex II of the Habitats Directives (Council Directive 92/43/EEC) were studied. The main tasks were: (i) analysis of three different monitoring procedure (monitoring of population size, monitoring of presence of the species within continuous distribution range, monitoring of presence of the species within the range of isolated populations/populations on the border of species' distribution range in Slovenia); (ii) defining the optimal monitoring protocols for selected species; (iii) designating the regions in Slovenia where each type of monitoring will take place.
