|This beautiful butterfly is one of the most characteristic species of southern chalk downland, where it flies low over short-grazed turf. Despite its restricted distribution, the butterfly can be seen in large numbers on good sites. It has undergone a major decline through its entire range, but has recently re-expanded in some regions.||
