Underwings are obviously very

Underwings are obviously very distinctive, but if you can only see upperwing, a good guide is the row of submarginal spots on the forewing - in HB, the 3rd spot from the front is smaller and displaced inwards, towards the body (this can be seen in the 1st pic, showing through the nearside wing). In DG, these spots continue in a smooth curve (although the 3rd spot may be small)
