Maniola jurtina ♀️
Less commonly for this species, this is a female showing 2 eyespots in the forewing. Still different from a gatekeeper since it does not have the smaller white spots in the lower underwing. In the area there was a mix of Maniola jurtina butterflies along with gatekeepers and they are often difficult to tell apart. In the attached link it is mentioned that Maniola with two spots do also exist: https://entomacrographic.co.uk/2013/08/0...
