Boloria napaea

Boloria napaea (NL: Bergparelmoervlinder / EN: Mountain Fritillary / DE: Ähnliche Perlmutterfalter / FR: Nacré des renouées) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. In Europe the species is found in the Alps, mountainous areas in northern Scandinavia and very local in the eastern parts of the Pyrenees. Boloria napaea flies in Alpine meadows above the tree line and is really quite similar to the Shepherd's Fritillary (Boloria pales).
