Gatekeeper Meadow brown

Post by David Beattie » Sun Aug 12, 2007 7:32 am

I had a look at the photo of the butterfly on the gallery and initially thought MB. The paler part of the wing underneath certainly looks more G than MB but in all the illustrations I have seen the G as two lighter spots within the dark spot at the upper tip of the wing. This specimen only appears to have one darker spot; also G has white spots on the rear wing and MB has black spots on the rear wing. Could this indicate the photo is of a Meadow Brown?
