This tortoise shell hatched from one of 10 chrysalis's. Is this a normal mutant or not?
Is that the upperside?
If so, I think you should mention this to Peter Eeles.
His web site lists and discusses several aberrations of small tortoiseshell, but not your one.
I have a feeling I may have seen this aberration in an old book by Frohawk or Kirby, but I don't have it any more.
If it is the underside, it looks fairly normal.
