Brief Summary

Read full entry

The Arctic Woodland Ringlet is often found on damp grasslands, but it also occurs on dry grasslands and in waste places, often where there is shelter from birches, or juniper bushes. Unlike the other ringlets in Lapland, the Arctic Ringlet (Erebia disa) and the Lapland Ringlet (Erebia embla), this species does not occur on peat bogs. It lays its eggs on Sheep’s-Fescue (Festuca ovina), Wood Millet (Milium effusum) and Swamp Meadow-grass (Poa palustris). The caterpillars take nearly two years to develop. Habitats: dry siliceous grasslands (100%).
