While there is no better solution, move it to Leptidea sinapis "uncertain" with a subtitle note Leptidea sinapis complex.

Imho, in such case we'd better say Leptidea sp. Or combine two species in one page. Or have it as L. sinapis complex, they use this at times. What to do when these species can't be identified by appearance only.

50/50 or still it's possible to move this to the species?

I think, it's useless to identify them by photo made in nature so I wrote sinapis.
