Also known as the Violet Fritillary or in France, La Petite Violette
   The name Weaver's Fritillary is in honor of Richard Weaver, an English insect collector who claimed to have obtained the specimen within ten miles of Birmingham around 1820.
   Boloria dia's preferred terralin is rocky meadows on the edges of deciduous woodland with larval host plants.
   The adult is a small fritillary with typically checkered orange brown dorsal side and a submarginal row of triangles and dots. The ventral side of the hindwing has a distinctive purplish violet band.
