Not Arran Brown

The commonest butterfly here in July is the Arran Brown (fløyesesringvinge), but they don’t often stay still like this one resting on Sanguisorba canadensis leaves…
Despite the fact that this species has its English name after the Scottish Island Arran, it’s uncertain if it has been found in the British Isles, a case of confusion with the Scotch Argus butterfly?
