Beckeri Marsh Fritillary Euodrydryas aurinia beckeri  Now considered as a species.

This is the most magnificent form of the Marsh Fritillary – very large, boldly marked and the brightest colouring and pattern of all. Beckeri occurs in parts of Spain, Portugal and North Africa. This stock is from Portugal. The larvae feed on Honeysuckle. In the wild these hibernate. It may be possible to keep summer larvae warm and with longer day length to get them to develop and produce butterflies again the same year. This has not yet been tried.
