Wall Butterfly (Lasiommata megera)

The Wall Brown (Lasiommata megera) is a species of butterfly in the Satyridae family.

Also known as the Wall Butterfly, and previously Parage megera, this species is widespread in England, Wales and Ireland, but apparently very rare in southern Scotland and absent from northern Scotland. A rather bright species, this species is brown with a majority of the wing covered in orange brown colouration. There are two eye-marks on either side of the forewing.
