Speyeria callippe? - Speyeria callippe

Speyeria callippe? - Speyeria callippe
Beaver Creek Conservation Area, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
June 30, 2018
I really have no idea which species this is but I don't think it's a great spangled fritillary because this individual didn't have the wide pale submarginal band on the underside of the hind-wings. The underside of the wings seemed very pale when the light shone through them. When scrolling through the examples of Speyeria callippe in the guide, I was reading the comments and one description noted, "Veins on forewing above heavily edged with black. Hindwing marginal black spots clearly triangular." That seemed to match this butterfly as did the photos for the species. If it isn't Speyeria callippe hopefully someone can tell me which fritillary it is. Thanks in advance.
