thanks bayucca. Maybe it's a variety that flies high up in the pyrenees, around 2000 meters!

A typical Nightmaretoidsatyr sp.! The black spots next to the spiky band is a little bit confusing. So I am not 100% sure about this one. If you check for other Satyrs you may not find many with these spiky band.
