Think It may be the above species (spotted today) but not confident enough to say for sure. Identification help would be much appreciated. First one I have noted this year so far in the white department but the numbers of small tortoiseshell have been unbelievably high!
Wow! I can tell you are very passionate on this subject Mike As I am just starting to find my feet in the world of insects etc I find the information mind boggling indeed! It is fascinating how nature sometimes gets things so wrong, Gender split butterflies are new to me! Thanks for the help guys, Much appreciated. I have more home work to do!
