haha terrible...for me these are the hardest, all look the same and have same colour, but counting spots on small blues can be interesting, sometimes :D

These are almost as much of a pain as the small blues :-)

Hi Jopy! Would you consider Ochlodes sylvanus? I'm looking in particular at the markings on the posterior wing, ventral view; see here:

T. sylvestris lacks these.
