Brown Argus? Warks (1 Viewer)


Registered User
Just got round to reviewing July pics, and although previously thought this was Common Blue after just a glance, now I'm wondering if that was right! Any thoughts, please?

It's a Brown Argus. In the first pic, you can see two spots forming a 'colon' on the leading edge of the hindwing :t:

It was new for me too in the garden last month + my second sighting was also on Verbena bonariensis as in yours!
