This butterfly is similar to the Bog Copper, but it has more of a deep orange colour on the underside. Also, the male Dorcas Copper has more dark spots on the upper side than the male Bog Copper. The male typically has a purplish cast to the upperside when fresh, as shown in the photo at bottom left. Some female Bog Coppers can closely resemble female Dorcas Coppers when viewed from the upper side, and they can be found together in the same bog. The Dorcas Copper is only known from a few locations in Southern Quebec, but is more common in the North.
