ps -- I was going to add the name of "Speyeria cybele" in () and I meant to say "I do not know if Speyeria cybele exist in US....."

I'm sorry, of course the species I had suggested are not found in US. I identified this thinking the spotting was in India and I have no idea how come I saw India in the location :).

And, thank you so very much for your help bayucca.
It is so very hard to find ID for so many similar butterflies and I do not know if () exist in US, but one of the pictures you sent me look like my butterfly (please see attached) and it is Great spangled fritillary - Speyeria Cybele. So, I will use it as ID. Thank you so much again for both of you. http://bugguide.net/node/view/726405/bgi...

These Fritillaries are not easy to ID, I always and still need much time to compare all these stripes, spots and patches. Issoria lathonia is to my knowledge not found in US. My closest guess is Speyeria cybele. Please, verify I am not 100% sure!
