Thanks guys! I love all your help! :)
yes that's mine ;-) i agree with doris, as u said it could be a seasonal variation.
Nuwan, is this second + from you? Would you confirm Doris??
It is definitely an Araschnia sp., and I think it might be Araschnia doris. But it need verification since Araschnia is an extremely variable genus. My own Map butterfly from Switzerland, Araschnia levana, has even 2 completely different forms (spring and summer forms). There is not much info about Chinese Araschnia sp. around.
