Small Fan-footed Wave looks more likely

@RHoman, I think you're right. I have another photo which shows the size as being just a fraction larger than a 1p coin (it was out of focus so I didn't upload it). The smaller size indicates that Small Fan-footed Wave is more likely.

Also, I notice in all the photos I can find, the abdomen extends much further beyond the hind-wings in SFFW than it does in Plain Wave.
