Ira! Didn't check out the links you gave, I checked and compared their descriptions. You're right again, this is Melanargia epinede. As for #7671 pic, I think the same is there. Grounds: 1. You can see part of the topside and this is specific color of Melanargia epinede whilst Melanargia halimede is way lighter; 2. If we rely on the collection specimen (underside) of Melanargia halimede, Vasily's photo, discal band is clearly seen and specific for this species. My pic has similar one, little bit though.

Yury, today I spreaded epimede of my reserves and a fresh September halimede and saw this photo. Serious doubt this is halimede. Check these http://catocala.narod.ru/sat51.html http://catocala.narod.ru/sat12a.html и http://rusinsects.com/satyrid/s-me-epi.htm http://rusinsects.com/satyrid/s-me-hal.htm. Both websites show distinctions between these two species. Look at the dark pattern on the wing topside and the underside pattern (7671 pic is also questionable).
