Maniola jurtina


Arguably the commonest European butterfly. It flies from north Africa into southern Scandinavia. It is often abundant throughout the range and can be found in dry or damp conditions upto moderate altitudes (1500m or so) and in any variety of grassy habitats. In Spain, north Africa and S France the subspecies hispulla flies. This is somewhat brighter orange and has orange markings in the underside hindwing post discal band.
