butterfly in northern italy
No interactions present.
The orange lunules on the outer edge of the upper and lower surfaces of the forewing seem unusual for purple shot copper. Is this a known variant?
I can't suggest an alternative id for this specimen, though. Hindwing certainly looks right.
Did not realise there were so many other coppers in other parts of europe.
