Aegean Meadow Brown

A rather moth eaten specimen of Maniola telmessia but there is only one generation of these butterflies which fly from January to October so they have a comparatively long life. Found all over Symi they are primarily an Asiatic species and are found in the eastern Aegean islands near to the Turkish coast with various variations across the islands.
