It looks very like the picture at

But I wouldn't say that is strong evidence to assign a species, without a deeper knowledge of these rather fascinating beasts.

Thanks

Thank you...it does look similar. As you suggest, though, 'it looks like' ID s are never the best!! I believe that argyrana is the commoner species in Yorkshire...but that does not make an ID, either...
