Hi Simon

Those wing tips look a bit too rounded for both CG and NR. Have you ruled out the borealis form of Ruby Tiger?

The shape looks okay to me for Cousin German (and I don't think it is Ruby Tiger), but there are very few markings to go on. I've never seen Cousin German and don't feel confident enough to agree the ID, but equally I can't see any reason why it isn't Cousin German.
