I looked thoroughly, yep, this is aglaja (no "eye" spots in the underside between the middle and the marginal spot rows).
Undersides to compare:
Argynnis aglaja (Linnaeus, 1758):
Argynnis adippe (Denis & Schiffermuller, 1775):
Good I added them back then :) Moving.

Pushed the button wrongly. Sorry.
Argynnis adippe as a version, though closer hindwing underside needed.
Anyway closer pic needed. I added earlier undersides of both species.

06.09.2014 13:51, Vasiliy Feoktistov This species is identified correctly.

Sadly no another shot. Why guess-work?) I thought the angle was quite good, both underside and upperside were seen.

Any chance to have a closer look? Better underside. This angle is a pure guess-work.
