Very distinctive markings of orange and brown. Medium to small size for a UK butterfly. A bit like a Fritillary at first glance, but we had seen these butterflies in the vicinity before so were keeping an eye out as we had been told the Walls were around. A distinctive dark rimmed, white-centered 'eye-spot' marking on each forewing. More of these on hindwings (upper side). Yellow edge to wings.
