This is a female
The shape of the wings in females is broader and rounder than in males. Also, the orange above is generally more strongly developed in females (most notably near the margin of the hind wing).

Mangrove Buckeye (Junonia genoveva)
I agree with your id of Mangrove Buckeye. A differentiating feature is that the forewing eyespot is completely surrounded by orange, as in your photo. Sorry, I don't know how to tell the difference between males and females.
