@Daniele: I think this is a female which usually do not show such white fringes like the males and Ioana's is quite a worn lady if younlook at the right wings. You agree??

Nice picture Ioana1407! Bayucca, I'd be happy with your suggestion excepted for the absence of checkered fringes... what do you think? Haven't found an alternative yet.

Nymphalidae, Satyrinae, Erebia sp., and Erebia ligea. Quite a tricky group. Some more links to compare:
