Actually it was spotted by Daphne Biggs who posted it on her facebook asking it's name. Now she knows!

I agree with Painted Lady. American Lady is another similar species and has two big dots on its upperside and three smaller ones and two on the underside and Painted Ladies have four evenly sized dots on the upperside and four on the underside. Nice pic and awesome butterfly!
