Coenonympha glycerion, Fadet de la mélique

Coenonympha glycerion, Fadet de la mélique ou Iphis/Semi-Procris, 
Chestnut Heath

The wing span is 25-35 millimetres. The upper surface of the female’s forewing is brighter orange, the hind wing light brown with an orange band along the edge. Wing fringes pale grey for both sexes. The wing undersides have eye patches that can be six, but sometimes fewer. The chestnut heath is regarded as a purely open landscape species, in dry as well as fresh meadows, but of course they can be seen at the favourite haunts of butterflies too – on forest roads and clearings.
