ragged wing edges, rich dark russet, black and yellow markings with dark margins on FW and HW.
The Faunus seeks out sunny glades in the forest for basking and feeding, especially coniferous (see photo #2) woods. BC south through central California and east to the Adirondacks.
This beauty stayed sunning itself on the branch of this fir for a long time until I tried to get a photo of the underside of the wings and then it was gone!
