New name

It seems that this species has had its name updated to Ochlodes sylvanus. You may want to amend or add this to your identification.

New name

Thanks for that - I will have to be aware when I refer to that book as it is quite an old one now. I looked in the most up to date book I have on butterflies - British Moths and Butterflies - A photographic guide - Chris Manley and the scientific name is Ochlodes venata so it must have changed again quite recently?

I'm not sure when the name

I'm not sure when the name changed. I think that there is a link to the information in one of the other large skipper sightings. I failed to find it earlier when I was looking.
