Pearl Frit

Wales is an essential refuge for many of Britain’s butterflies and moths.

The uplands, valleys and coasts have hugely important populations of our rare butterflies and moths; including the Marsh Fritillary, High Brown Fritillary and Pearl-bordered Fritillaries.

In Wales, conservation of the highly endangered High Brown Fritillary and Pearl-bordered Fritillary are top priorities. Wales has its share of special moths found nowhere else in Britain, these include the Silurian and Ashworth’s Rustic.
