Strange Wainscot

Found this Common Wainscot in the doorway of a shower block at Glastonbury Festival. I noticed that one of the wings is quite a bit larger than the other. Is it an example of bilateral gynandromorphy. A situation where each half of an insect has all the characteristics of its gender. i.e. one male wing and one female. Anyone any experience of this?

Bilateral gynandromorphy? Think they played The Park didn't they?

In 4 visits I saw one fleeting glimpse of what was probably a L blue. Plenty of Marbled Whites and a Dingy Skipper. Its a v poor year for the blues so far
