Description

Yellow-legged Tortoiseshell Nymphalis xanthomelas

A very handsome and richly coloured Large Tortoiseshell which occurs in parts of Europe and in the Far East. It is also reported to have been found breeding in Britain.

The butterfly, caterpillar and pupae are all brighter and grander than polycholoros. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 

The larvae feed on Willows, Sallows, Elm, and probably many other trees, including those for polychloros.

A few pupae are available immediately. .
