You're welcome Malcolm. That's a tricky one but that white dot is a good criteria.

Thanks for the correction on the ID Daniele.

Very similar to A. aglaja. On the A. niobe hindwing underside, there is an additional small white spot (sometimes with a back spot inside) near the base, well visible here.
