Northern Eyed Brown
(Satyrodes eurydice eurydice)
This species will not be seen at the BFEC. It is a wetland species. It is most apt to be seen in sedge meadows or fens. It prefers sunny open areas. This individual was photographed at a wetland near Bladensberg. Northern Eyed Browns have been seen in Ohio wetlands from June through August. As more wetland habitat is lost they are apt to become less common.
On the specimen with the folded wings note the jagged nature of the bands. The inner line on the ventral hindwing has a finger-like projection that points toward the base of the wing. This projection helps distinguish this species from others. Also note that the spots are individually surrounded by a white ring. This helps distinguish this species from the Northern Pearly Eye.
