Two aberrations in one for Gatekeeper?

Postby peterc » Sat Jul 22, 2017 5:48 pm

While walking my Knebworth Park transect today I saw a Gatekeeper which looked darker than usual. Looking up the aberrations list this insect could be ab. postice-inocellata (missing the anal spot on the hindwings) and ab. semi-nigra where the orange patches on the hindwings are much reduced.
