Sorry, Fyn it is the other one, but you already did a good job! If you look at the spots at the margin of the hindwing, you see the difference between pale and common: Common has much darker and larger spots/pins, whereas in Pelopidas as the common name indicates, these spots and all the other marking are much paler.
