|This butterfly is very little but it's very beautiful.|
Lycaena virgaureae (LINNAEUS, 1758)
Flight Time: June - September
The male Scarce Copper is a strikingly beautiful butterfly with his vivid, solid orange upperside which is very conspicuous in flight. The undersides are very characteristic with the white splodges in the post-discal line. The female upperside is much duller and very spotty. Despite its name, this butterfly seems quite common in upland areas over about 1000m. Females are seen more rarely.
