Unsure - Lysandra spp.  probably Lysandra albicans aragonesis

I'm a little uncertain of this one. I saw it near Axat in the Pyrenées Orientales, France. I guess it's a form of Lysandra coridon, please email me if you know its' name. I thought perhaps it may be Lysandra albicans, the picture in Higgins & Riley is about right, and the top side was very pale (don't have a picture unfortunately), but their distribution doesn't fit (don't get as far north as France ?). Any ideas?
