The Meadow Brown is one of our commonest and most widespread butterflies, and a familiar sight throughout the summer months. This species can be found in all parts of the British Isles, with the exception of the most mountainous regions and Shetland.This is a highly variable species with four named subspecies found in the British Isles, although the differences between them are often subtle.

The picture is mine but my thanks to the experts at who clarified the breed for me.
