that's why !! :D haha ...these crazy fritillaries ... !you're absolutely right !it's the one i've seenthank you very much for the correct id Daniele !! :)
@danielle and martin, i am SO sorry i misread that ;) i was much too tired this morning ;) haha
Martin, after checking the dorsal markings I have excluded Argynnis and Boloria as genera. Check my suggestion and see what others think!On a lighter note I'm sure you've seen these T-shirts :-)http://www.zazzle.com/no_kangaroos_in_au...
that's right ...we don't have kangaroos;D
Caleb: this was spotted in Austria, not Australia.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austria
@danielle: this page says it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_but...
Caleb, a kind reminder to check for distribution before making suggestions. Argynnis hyperbius is not found in Austria or in Europe in general. Thanks :-)
oh, well, i just looked at other photos of it and i think you're right ;) probably not. Well, i don't have time to research more now, if you don't get an ID soon i will try and help later. Hope you get an ID!
no, what a pity - you're right ! but i've seen the ventral colours and they appeared rather like argynnis adippe ... thank you very much for your Suggestion but i strongly doubt that it's the Indian fritillary ... :|
sorry martin, i gave you the wrong reference link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argynnis_hy... is the correct one. This is likely argynnis species. A ventral shot though would help confirm. Do you happen to have one?
