Could be either Andrew.
The palps theory is unreliable, some say you can tell from the larger tooth like projections in Svensson's, but the sure-fire way to tell is to check the flush of orange/red on the underside of the hindwing.

Agree,Id have gone for copper,but when there this worn it has to be Copper Underwing agg...underwing is a good id feature but its best to have at least two,before deciding it to species..always tricky
