|Dear Ivan, firstly thanlks for your kind comment!
Secondly: Indeed, i also have accepted this pair like you. But our Turkish Butterfly expert Özgür Koçak has told me this is Dusky Meadow Brown(DMB). Then i searched my library and internet sources and i reached a fine notes of this one of the three widespread Meadow Browns in Europe and also Turkey:
The Meadow Brown (MB), Maniola jurtina, is particularly common throughout most of Europe which may well mask the true distribution of DMB. The Oriental Meadow Brown (OMB), Hyponephele lupina, and the DMB are actually rather dull yellow, grey and dark brown butterflies. By contrast, MB has bright orange markings and warm brown coloration. The upperside markings of DMB and OMB are fairly constant. The undersides of these two species are finely mottled grey and fairly uniform in colour density. Again MB differs by being very variable in all aspects and the underside has a distinct pale post discal band often with orange towards the east. This species and OMB differ from one another in size and it is smaller. The upperside markings are also indistinct and the male forewing upperside sex-brand is narrow, disrupted by two veins (#2 & #3). Comparing the sexes lycaon (DMB) is always much brighter and with extensive (although not always bright) yellowy orange markings. The much darker, grey brown of lupina (OMB) is quite distinct. The OMB also has more heavily scalloped hindwings compared to DMB and MB. In DMB the underside of the hindwing ground colour variable; generally greyish or greyish-brown, often whitish in limestone habitats.
I captured this pair on lava rocks! Still i am not sure on exact id. May be you are right!
All the best!
