Marsh Fritillary

The Marsh Fritillary is threatened, not only in the UK but across Europe, and is therefore the object of much conservation effort.

The wings of this beautiful butterfly are more brightly patterned than those of other fritillaries, with more heavily marked races being found in Scotland and Ireland. The larvae spin conspicuous webs that can easily be recorded in late summer.
