[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Duke of Burgundy (Hamearis lucina) is a European butterfly in the family Riodinidae. For many years, it was known as the "Duke of Burgundy Fritillary", because of the adult's similar markings to "true" Fritillaries of the family Nymphalidae.

The species range is restricted to the Western Palaearctic, from Spain, the UK and Sweden to the Balkans (Oates & Emmet, 1990). It is the sole representative of its (sub)family in Europe (Oates & Emmet, 1990).
