SK5243 : Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus), male

taken 13 years ago, near to Bulwell, Nottingham, Great Britain

Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus), male.
Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus), male.
The Gatekeeper, or Hedge Brown, is common in all southern counties of England, and in lowland Wales, wherever wild grasses and shrubs grow together, but is absent from Scotland. This specimen is a male, distinguished by the dark scent band across the orange of the upperwing. It is sometimes confused with the much larger Meadow Brown which has less orange and only one white pupil in the eyespot on the upperwing.
