Jeremy Dexter comments as follows on the above photo:

"On initial view this looks good for Beautiful as the wings appear brownish and the white spot is well placed.  However the wings do have a green tint and the antenodal cross veins don’t look right to me so I have my doubts on the ID - maybe sometimes it isn’t possible to be 100% sure. Immature males (e.g. the one on the Cholsey blog) are much easier to ID so at least confirms Beautiful on site".
