Butler's Ringlet Erebiola butleri

Observer

Date

March 29, 2017

Description

Upto 9 on the wing along the ridgetop both north and east of matrked location. None were seen to settle at all, so no photographs! This is a location where I have previously seen this species and have submitted photographs. This is the latest time of year that I have seen them. Their colour on the wing is a smokey charcoal and there flight habit similar to Tussock Ringlet but they frequent areas of shorter vegetation. There are no Black Mountain ringlets (nor bare scree) that they could be confused with.

Many of wing, few settling, and I was unable to get a picture of the underwing to determine if A. harrisi or A. janitae.

Hard to get close enough on the rare occasions they settled. On the wing they appeared black but almost 2/3rds the wing size of Percnodaimon merula, and they settled exclusively over low cushion plants in a damp basin.

I could not get close enough for a decent resolution picture and so am not sure which species I have here.

Although larger than the Boulder Coppers in the same area, they were smaller than lowland coppers of this species. Perhaps 30% smaller.

When I saw this butterfly at rest with wings closed I thought it was a blue, the underside of the hind wings appeared light blue.

Zoomed in to get a picture of Earina orchid at about 6m up a silver beech only to find the moth when I viewed the picture. The identity was suggested to me.
