Extremely tricky one! And I think it is not possible to get down to species without a ventral view. Candidates (among approx. 100 Erebia sp. and at least 16 in your area, and of which some could easily ruled out) might be:
Erebia euryale (male), Erebia errphyle, Erebia epiphron and probably some more. They are all very variable within the same genus and you aslo have some sexual dimorphism.
Do you have any other shot of this one??

Hi Giuseppe! Beautiful shot and butterfly! This is not Crocozona caecias, which is a neotropical butterfly and looks quite different. I am looking for the right ID for you. Someone else may find it before I do:-).
