|2124 ~ Fen Square-spot ~ Diarsia florida|
There is much indecision as to whether this is a separate species from the Small Square-spot, but until this debate is settled the Fen Square-spot will be treated here as a separate species. Probably much more common than the records suggest, being overlooked due to confusion with the Small Square-spot.
Wingspan : M & F, 30-38mm.
Small Square-spot, Ingrailed Clay, Barred Chestnut.
Fens, marshes and other wet places.
A wide range of herbaceous plants.
The early stages have not been confirmed in the wild, but probably similar to the Small Square-spot.
