Hipparchia semele

GRAYLING Hipparchia semele

Primarily a species of coastal sand hills, it also occurs on limestone around Morecambe Bay (SD47) and there were tenuous colonies at two isolated inland sites on salt flashes in Cheshire, near Northwich and Sandbach. I am a little uncertain about the inland records in Lancashire during the first period and suspect misidentification.
