The Large Wall Brown (Lasiommata maera) is a butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. The species is common in continental Europe. Though it is an avid flyer It is seldom seen on flight in strong wind. Its preferred habitats are edges of the forests and unmanaged clearings on forested areas. The larva eats full grown grasses (f.e. Poa annua, Festuca pratensis).
