Brown Argus - Northern or not?

Initially I thought it was Brown Argus but my latest book (by Chris Manley) says the Brown Argus is only found on chalk and limestone downs in southern England/ coastal Wales.(I am in North Notts!) Also the Northern has a white mark surrounding the wing spots which when you magnify my picture enough comes through - but not very clearly.
