Spotted this fritillary today while out hiking. It was in a large clearing of a large coniferous/mixed forest in South East Norway (Orje) on the border with Sweden. The clearing was kind of large bog, very wet underfoot.
Tried to id it later but there are quite a few fritillary species that occur here.
No, sadly not. It flew off before I could get close enough. One thing I did notice though is that it was not that big. I know size is a relative property, so all I can say is that it was definitely smaller than a silver-washed frittilary.
