Meadow Brown - Maniola jurtina

Bradley & Fletcher No.: 1626
Agassiz No.: 59.010

The Meadow Brown is the most abundant butterfly species in many habitats. Hundreds may be seen together at some sites, flying low over the vegetation. Adults fly even in dull weather when most other butterflies are inactive. It is one of our most widespread species, but many colonies have been lost due to agricultural intensification.
