Heath Fritillary Melicta athalia

 

Common in parts of Europe, and a rare and very localised species in Britain.  The larvae thrive on narrow-leaved Plantain Plantago  and bear a remarkable resemblance to its flowerheads.  Larvae supplied in July/August will normally hibernate, but if kept in warm conditions, some may grow and produce butterflies again this year.
