Pattern

I find Angle Shades usually has a but of a pattern on the back (sort of weak chevrons) which I cannot quite see here. If there were more pictures I might be confident enough to suggest that as an ID.

I know the chevrons you mean

I know the chevrons you mean David but I dont think theyre always as conspicuous as we want when trying to ID. I still think there's a very good chance it is the Angle Shades as you suggested. A dorsal view might show the markings better as you say.
