Canary speckled wood (Pararge xiphioides)
It is quite common to encounter this butterfly on the islands of La Palma, Tenerife, La Gomera and Gran Canaria. Even though it looks similar to the well known Speckled wood (Pararge aegeria) that can be found all over central Europe and Northern Africa, this species is endemic to the Canary Islands.
And there's even a third relative, Pararge xiphia, that only lives on the island of Madeira.
