Good Friday good for Large Reds

By April 23, 2019 Blog

Hot on the heels of the first sightings, Large Reds were seen at both Attingham Park (by Paul Spear) and Whixall Moss (by Stephen Barlow) on Good Friday. Paul took the photo shown here of a female. Females come in 3 colour forms so it’s always a good chance to have a closer look whilst there are few other species about. This is the form fulvipes with yellow antehumeral stripes and black markings on the abdomen.
