Appalachian Brown

Satyrodes appalachia


Medium-sized (4cm) brown butterfly with very distinctive "bulls eye" circles on the wings and scalloped lines along the edges of the wings.


Flying among sedges and shrubby growth along edge of wetland.


There were several of them constantly moving and none stayed still for more than a second or two. When they landed, they always kept their wings closed so I couldn't get a picture of the top side but I'm fairly sure of the identification as the underside markings are so clear (habitat and behaviour also matches my Peterson Guides listing).
