Ure, yesterday began to write their opinions to your answer to Peter. And today is ready to support you - it Celastrina filipjevi = Maslowskia filipjevi. The Botanical Garden in a radius of about 2 to 3 meters from the large number Prinsep Celastrina filipjevi. Butterflies of this species do not usually fly off from the undergrowth Prinsep more than 3m.According to Belyaev, "The Botanical Garden-Institute FEB RAS and arboretum Gorno-taiga Station, Far Eastern Branch of RAS on small plantings ploskosemyannika freely migrating females copper-butterfly Filipeva were based quite viable colonies of species."And judging by the date of shooting, is a butterfly of the first generation (flying from late June until mid-July) before the end of the flight of, you're right.

If you focus on the core underside and nature spots I would have brought it to the Maslowskia filipjevi Riley. What confuses? Kurentsov writes: The underside of both sexes silvery white ..... In this case, about the underside do not say. What though of nothing says, along with a painting, fly, including together with silver and white (Chinese ploskosemyannik near growing).In general, it seems that such a hue as the image appears on the old butterflies before they finish Flight.
In general, for a number of species, probably it is necessary to have a top and underside of the same individuals and then maybe we can talk (or not say) about the diagnosis only at the top or underside.

Yury, what's your opinion?

Having other ladonides surely identified this butterfly evokes serious doubt.

14.01.2013 19:47, Peter Khramov

Moved to C. ladonides "uncertain".

12.01.2013 20:24, Evgeny Komarov

Most probably this is Celastrina ladonides (de l'Orza, 1867), not quite sure though.

08.01.2013 18:56, Peter Khramov

Moved to "uncertain" and "Open case". Share your opinions if you have some.

Not argiolus since it's Primorye region. Can't surely name the species. :)
