A small, orange butterfly, showing black antennae tips. It is a common butterfly in Southern Quebec although not endemic, introduced to Canada in the early 20th century.
I observed this species in almost every park around Montreal where there is a considerable area of unkempt grassy landscape with flowers.
There are no similar butterflies in the area. Characteristic for this species though is the orange color and the black antennae tips.
