butterfly

Could you identify this butterfly photographed by a field north of Basingstoke. It was photographed on my mobile, which is why the quality is not too good.

    I think it's an aberrant form of a small tortoiseshell. They're very rare, so a good spot! It might even be worth sending a note to your local butterfly recorder with the photo.

     

    There's some interesting info here: http://www.boxvalley.co.uk/nature/sns/wad63/W63-note.html#B

     

    Best, Mark
