The brown argus is a butterfly found in the dunes. It belongs to the gossamer-winged butterflies, just like the green hairstreak and the small copper. Male and female brown argusses are brown on the upper side. They prefer open areas where common stork's bills or geraniums are present. This is what the caterpillars eat. The brown argus is considered a vulnerable species on the Red List for butterflies.
