    Default Pygmy Posy or dwarf Common Posy?

    This fella which resembles a Common Posy, was seen sunbathing close by a male Common Posy at USR yesterday. Its size is small just like a Pygmy Posy, the upper side is exactly like a male Common Posy. The submarginal orange band is extended to vein 3 and the 2 black lines at the dorsum are touching, I understand that these 2 are features of a Pygmy? However, the hind wing apex, between V6 and V7 is orange. What I understand is this part of the Pygmy should be black in colour?

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
