Hi Martin, I think it is closer to common bluebottle...actually, they are very simliar, difficult to distinguish..

Sorry to throw a spanner in the works.
These two very similar species are very easily and often confused and were once considered subspecies.
G. milon has a thinner blue zone and darker black zones. The butterfly is slightly larger than the common bluebottle. Please compare these two and decide which you think best matches your spotting.
