Description

Marsh Fritillary Eurodryas aurinia 

 

It's a very long time since we have been able to offer egg masses. Each mass should produce 100-200 larvae. Amazing value!

 

They feed low amongst the leaves of Devil’s Bit Scabioius, but will also eat Honeysuckle. Honeysuckle starts leafing very early in the year, especially where sheltered in woodland. By February it is not diffficult to find enough foodplant to keep caterpillars well fed.  In captivity the larvae are recorded as accepting Ribwort Plantain Plantago lanceolata, Teasel Dipsacus and Snowberry Symphoricarpos.

 

After waking in the spring the larvae grow fast, pupating in April and emerging as butterflies in May.
