Speckled wood butterfly



14/5/16


The Speckled Wood is a common butterfly and familiar to many observers, especially in woodland where, as its name suggests, it is most often found. The appearance of this butterfly changes from north to south, forming a "cline", where individuals in the north are dark brown with white spots, with those in more southerly locations being dark brown with orange spots. This has given rise to a number of subspecies. (link)

Males of the spring brood have greyer wingtips than those of the summer brood. Similarly, females of the spring brood are lighter in colour than those of the summer brood, which have very pronounced black markings. (link)

Thyme-leaved speedwell (Veronica serpyllifolia)

Park

*New to the park/and flower list this year * (2014)


Thyme-leaved speedwell thrives in quite open places because it cannot stand very aggressive competition. It often grows on arable land, in yards and other places around people. It prefers ditch banks, shores and damp paths, especially with clay soil. (link)
