The dark butterfly

There were ringlets in the same area but as this doesn't appear to have spots is it a different species?

Spots on the upper surface of Ringlet's wings are inconspicuous at best. The large, clearly marked ringer spots (which give the butterfly its name) are on the underside of the hindwing.
