Help with Meadow Brown Aberrations.

Hi all

 

Walking on the North Wilts downland recently, I came across two unusual Meadow Browns with white patches on the wings and which I believe are called aberrations. It has been suggested to me that these may be caused by water on the pupa and that the scales on these butterflies where the white occurs would look different under a microscope. Is this correct. Please tell me what you think and do these aberrations have a name, there is nothing like them on the Cockanye website of British butterfly aberrations. Thanks in advance. I hope you enjoy the images, these butterflies were spectacular especially when in flight.
