Hey, the more suggestions about the same species we have, the better, even for Lycaena virgaureae... So, image goes from "undetermined" to Lycaena virgaureae.

Me either not argued, I just noticed this photo was published as "undetermined", so I looked through the image gallery and thought about this very species name assured now.

Actually, there was no any arguing.
