Here is a copy of almost five years in inaccurate. I found the source code and replaced the normal size. Specialists on the copper-butterfly! Maybe after Alexis?

#3000 moved to "uncertain".

13.01.2011 14:08, Evgeny Komarov is even less clear to identify! Angle sucks, but I have no other pics of this very butterfly. Let's delete it at all!

Evgeny, what about Looks similar to.

Now just rechecked that once more (digged through my archives) and.... was no reason to doubt. First identifying was right!

Yet first identifying was sooner right, so as you can see orange "eyes" on its hind wings which alexis can't have.

Wrong identifying, quite probably. That's rather Glaucopsyche alexis.
