I agree that it is more Melitaea phoebe. Do yourself look under high magnification, and "launched" a little underside of the second butterfly ... on the orange spots sling dark orange, not black!) It turns out that phoebe.

I'll say. Overal appearance says more for Melitaea phoebe. Though the angles here (underside hardly seen) make it hard to conclude anything on what's this, Melitaea phoebe or dark M. cinxia. If leave this in M. cinxia, then in tentatively identified.
