Workshop Note
Argynnis paphia L.
The Female.

Silver washed Fritillary
Kaisermantel, Silberstrich

The female A. paphia has a significantly different appearance. One may even mistake the female for a different species. It does not have the male's broad dark veins on the forewings, all the dark spots however are more extended. The wing colour is not a bright orange yellow, it is more or less shaded and tends towards a greenish hue.

This picture was taken at the same day at the same location: Lago d’Idro in northern Italy August 5, 2004.

Camera: Minolta Dimage 7Hi, with integrated tele-zoom and macro, no flash.

Hope you enjoy.
