Thanks for ID. It doesn't

Thanks for ID. It doesn't look like the other Square Spots I've seen - they really did have square spots! Is this another common form? Thanks.

Sq spots

They are very variable in colour, and yes confusingly the kidney mark isn't always square! What made me change my mind on this id was that the inside of the kidney mark is lighter than the ground colour of the wing, which wouldn't fit if it were Hoplodrina.
