Caption

Large copper. Coloured historical engraving of a large copper butterfly (Lycaena dispar). Various stages in its life cycle are shown. The caterpillar (lower left) eats until it has stored enough energy to turn into a pupa (lower right). During the pupal stage, the creature metamorphoses into the adult form, the butterfly. The male of the species is on the left here, showing more pronounced copper colouration than the brownish female (right). A view of the underside of a wing is at top. This species has been extinct in the British Isles since 1848, and remains scarce throughout Europe. Engraving from a book published in 1853.
