Unknown butterfly

This came flapping inside our car in last Midsummer day (23.6.2007). I have been looking around to identify the black-and-while beauty, but with small success so far. Any ideas? There were several of these flying fast around small path/road cutting through mixed woods in central Häme (a bit north from Tampere).

  1. Chiasmia clathrata (ruutumittari)?

    (As you probably remember, I know absolutely nothing about butterflies, but couldn’t resist the challenge)

    For a silly reason the same comment ended up to your Flick account under the poster name oma.varasto, which is my Gmail backup address 😉
