This is a late addition to my new butterfly species experience in 2014, identified with the help of friends. The photos were taken in early June on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, and on superficial inspection I thought they were merely sylvestris

I had originally taken the effort, just in case they could prove to be a new species to me. Good plan, I think, in retrospect.
