stwood46, you give

your identification the highest level of confidence so presumably you have carefully compared the underwing pattern with book illustrations or online photos. However, despite the oblique angle, i am sure there is no mid-discal spot on the forewing which should rule out P. icarus. Are you sure you have ruled out Aricia? Further the proximal spot in cell 7 of the hindwing appears very close to that in cell 6 which also counts against icarus.
