Meadow Brown Rebel
Observed: 21st July 2012 By: sgwarnog

I would normally use the double pupil as a means of distinguishing the Meadow Brown from the Gatekeeper, but this one seems to have the patterning of a Meadow Brown. Also, I have observed Meadow Browns in our garden before, but never a Gatekeeper. I understand that double-pupilled Meadow Browns are a known variant (ab. bioculata Rebel) but this isn't listed in the id menu in iSpot. What do you think?
