But looking at the second picture the ups cannot be didyma so it must be trivia.
The first picture the hw uns could be either.

Thanks Daniele, I think the bit of forewing tip showing ups suggests M. didyma?

On the hindwing underside, M. phoebe has dark orange dots along the outer orange band. For your location this is M. didyma or M. trivia:
