A top-side view of one individual. These butterflies were incredibly abundant in a large wetland along the Nipissing River near the western border of Algonquin PP, with many patrolling around, perching, or nectaring on Labrador Tea (Ledum groenlandicum). This species is considered rare and local in Algonquin according to the park's butterfly checklist. See also (1).
