European Peacock (Aglais io)
A colorful butterfly with uniquely colored large eyelike circles. This butterfly is of European origin established in the Montreal area recently. It appears early in the spring.
How To Identify
The size and color of the large circles on the back of the animal, imitating eyes of a larger animal, are unique in shape and color.
Where and When to Spot
During spring almost everywhere around Montreal. I saw my first individuum in Park Pointe aux Prairies.
