Silver-washed Fritillary butterfly, form valesina
Silver-washed Fritillary butterfly, form valesina
Two aberrant species here, but both occurrences are not particularly rare. The butterfly is a pale, greenish version of the usual reddish brown colour (seeTQ2238 : Splendour in the brambles), this form only occurs in females. The plant is a Marsh Thistle with white flowers instead of the usual purple. The fritillary is very common in these woods, as is the thistle.
