Polygonia satyrus ssp. satyrus
Upperside of the wings varies from tawny to a golden colour. There is a light border on the hindwings and a double dark spot at the lower edge on the forewings. The underside is streaked light and dark brown, with a rather straight margin between the inner and outer parts of the wings. Also, the dark streaks near the leading edge of the forewings are lozenge-shaped.
