Description

Heath Fritillary Melicta athalia

Pupae very seldom offered and these are available NOW. These will hatch in June/July.

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.  July/August larvae will normally hibernate, but if kept in warm conditions, some may grow and produce butterflies again this year.
