Piedmont ringlet, Erebia meolans, for comparison

This Erebia species is not common but quite widespread in mountainous regions. It is characterised by the pattern of spots on the upperside of the forewing. There an extra spot in the top corner, which most Erebia lack, and this spot is almost directly in line with the others. Piedmont ringlets (Erebia meolans) often have this spot, but it is well out of line, as in the last picture here for comparison.
