Is this a obliging Butterfly a Star Studded Blue? Lots of them fluttering about in the North Wales sand dunes. If it is, what sub-species is it?

Common Blue

This looks more like Common Blue to me, Silver-spotted has a black border to the blue on the upperside, as well as the silvery spots on the underside.
