        1. Hi WildFlower,

          I know I'm not good at searching, but after long search, I thought to have found the type on the following site.
          http://www.soortenbank.nl/soorten.php?soortengroep=insecten&menuentry=soorten&id=1037&tab=beschrijving

          Apparently I miss it again, sorry for this.

          Greeting,
          Mike

          1. The devil is in the detail, you know. You were probably misslead by the white spots on orange patch that both have in the upper part of the wing but the lower part is different and the photo they have on the site you were searching is not so clear compared to those of the links above. Keep trying :)
