Ochre Ringlet (LEP161) Coenonympha sp.


     The main color of this brightest ringlet is ochre, i.e., a rich, reddish-gold.  The upper side is all ochre, as is most of the forewing below.  Its tip beyond the yellow-ringed black eyespot is grayish.  The hindwing is olive-gray, except for the buffy lightning-streak across it.  The Ochre Ringlet is very abundant in the Rocky Mountains.
