Oh! You've completely solved my problem actually! This is a species called Black Prince which is found here, apparently the females are this colour and the males are darker. Thank you so much

Oh wow it does look like that! Although distribution doesn't place that species in my area. Strangely I have just caught another one around 3 hours ago which looks the same. I will post a picture of that too. Thank you for your help!

It looks like a very worn Himalayan Brown Prince but I have not checked distribution for this species yet.
