Light Emerald?

The whole crossband carries over onto the hind wing, not just the lower edge; doesn't that rule out the Light Emerald?

I've just seen your comment...

The crossband on Light Emerald is on all 4 wings and the termen of Scalloped Oak is scalloped which should show up in your photo if it was this.
