Description:

Five spots on each forewing. I don't think the forewings are long enough for it to be Narrow-bordered type and I couldn't see the hind wings.

ADVICE PLEASE

Help me out. If it is true that you cannot tell the difference between a 5-spot and Narrow-bordered 5-spot from a photo then why, given that you have only a photo to go on, do you opt for the latter rather than the former?

Opted?

Ophrys has indicated it is one of two species in his identification, he has not opted for one or the other.
