I think that it is Boloria only which? Maybe it other species? Thanks Luciano for ID which is Boloria selene
The Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary (Boloria selene), called the Silver-bordered Fritillary in North America, is a butterfly of the family Nymphalidae. Similar to Pearl-bordered Fritillary but has black chevrons on edge of wings, large central black dot on each one and white pearls (compared to 2 of the other species) on the underside.Widespread across central and northern Europe and through Asia to Korea and also occurs in North America.Range appears stable through much of Europe but declines have been reported in at least nine countries.
Widespread across upland and western Britain, but not found in central, eastern England or Ireland.It occurs in damp, grassy habitats, woodland clearings and moorland. Has also been found in dune slacks and coastal cliffs.
