Speckled Wood Pararge aegeria aegerides 10 larvae

 

The Speckled Wood butterfly likes woodland dappled shade. The larvae feed on grasses and it is easiest to rear them on potted coarse grass. If kept warm the larvae should produce another generation of butterflies this season.  Winter is usually spent as small larvae hibernating in the base of grass tussocks but some pass the winter as a pupa.
