If im right in thinking that the female common blue has two extra spots at the bottom of the forewing, then this is a brown argus.

The Common Blue has one extra

The Common Blue has one extra spot on the forewing, which is absent here. Your photo also shows that the two spots near the front of the hindwing are almost touching, forming a figure '8'.

I'm confident that this is a Brown Argus.
