PEACOCK EYE BUTTERFLY (Inachis io)
Peacock butterflies are  probably the longest-lived butterflies in Britain, with adults surviving  from late July, well into the following spring, perhaps into June.  Thus, contrary to popular belief that butterflies only live for a few  days, some Peacocks may live to see their 11th month (albeit having  spent five or six months of their adult lives asleep in hibernation).
