Can't we just call this a "plain" ringlet?

Are we ever satisfied?
I'm on record as saying Common Ringlet deserves a better name. (Maybe the two could swap, and we'd both be happy. LOL!) Nice photo of an excellent specimen, whatever it's called.

How About
"Trashy common harlot" ringlet?

Oh, it begs for a new scientific name!
