I think you are right Chris.I

I think you are right Chris.I have now looked more carefully at the differences between the two on the www.butterfliesoffrance.com website and Small Heath seems always to have a rather "furry" underside to the wing when compared to M. jurtina.

I guess this may be diagnostic...? It is certainly easier to determine which is which!
