Meadow Fritillaries are lesser fritillaries -- larger than crescents but smaller than the greater fritillaries and flying on stiff wings.
Moist meadows and grasslands eastward; willow thickets in the West.
Usually present as a colony, rather than as a few individuals. The population dynamics of this species are not understood. It appears to be expanding in some parts of its range, while disappearing from other areas.
