Ok, thanks for approval, it goes to "identified successfully".

I think that this is very Cupido (Everes) argiades since its wings end with little brushes and edged with a moderate black fringe.

I put it then to argiades "uncertain" though we'd better hear Boris' opinion on the subj.

10.05.2012 21:14, Alexey Azizov This species is identified correctly.

I looked at a few more website photos of this butterfly and I lean to Cupido argiades.

Likely there is no any. Let's wait for Boris Stradomsky who might put a dot on it.

Un-der-side! Un-der-side! (chanting)

This is not Polyommatus but one of three Cupido (Everes) those who fly in your neck of the woods.
