Le Petit Mars

Le Petit Mars

From what the internet shows and tells me, my best guess is that this butterfly is a member of the species knowledgeable lepidopterists identify as “Apatura ilia” – Ger: Kleiner Schillerfalter, Eng: Lesser Purple Emperor, or, as the title says, Fr: Le Petit Mars. Butterly names are both lyrical and strange. Strangely lyrical / lyrically strange … stryrical?
