Small Copper (Lycaena phlaeas)
Small Copper (Lycaena phlaeas)
This beautiful little butterfly, whilst still fairly common, is declining in many areas due to intensification of agriculture, reclamation of heathland, increased shadyness of woods and lack of sheep or rabbit grazing on unimproved downs. Male & female are similar in colouring though there is a lot of variation in the size of the black marks on the upperwings.
