It is a bit difficult to work on this one without some idea of scale. However, I don't think it is a pug. The cross-lines on the wing are, with one exception, a bit faint, but I would suggest it is a Willow Beauty.

I think Willow Beauty might

I think Willow Beauty might be a good guess too, but these can be difficult enough when you got them in the hand.

Without an idea of scale it's difficult to say much for certain, but the extent to which the hind wings project beyond the end of the abdomen suggest a Beauty rather than a Pug, as does what little can be seen of the antennae. The converging crosslines on the forewings would suggest Willow Beauty rather than the equally-common Mottled Beauty, where the crosslines tend to remain roughly parallel
