Common Wood-nymph, Incana subspecies Cercyonis pegala incana
This butterfly has two distinctive dark “eyes” on each forewing. It inhabits Garry oak woodlands and meadows and is declining rapidly in numbers. It feeds on wild flowers and the larvae use wild grasses and sedges. Conservation involves avoiding the use of pesticides, and protecting native plants in Garry oak woodlands and meadows from trampling, grazing, and weed invasion.
