Milbertís Tortoiseshell,Aglais milberti<LEP124>

 

†††† Tortoisshells have decidedly different upper and lower surfaces.Milbertís above is chocolate brown with a two-toned band-- yellow inside, orange outer-- orange basal spots, and blue dots in the dark margin.Below there is no such fire-rim pattern, just a dark brown basal half, tan band, and dark border.Thus it blends exactly into tree bark.It is widespread in North America, here shown on western sneezeweed.
