The Mountain Ringlet
This butterfly has a dark-brown hue with some orange eyespots on its wings. The difference between it and the Scotch Argus lies in the colour of the eyespots as the latter has white ones. It is not easy to come across this species as their colonies are quite remote. It is hard to determine the status of this species due to the unpredictable weather in the ranges as well as the remoteness of their habitats. However, studies show that it is sustainable.
The adults come out when the sun is bright. They can also come out when there is dull weather. They tend to keep low to the ground, and they fly for short distances before pausing on flowers and grass along their path for feeding. They mainly feed on mat-grass. They are pretty average in size when compared to other species, and they have a wingspan of about thirty-five millimetres.
