Awesome moth, Jemma!

Looks pretty close! I'm horrible at distinguishing moth species unless the differences are very obvious. I have a spotting very similar to yours:

It is a gift of the heat wave, Bringing out critters. I saw quite a few bugs at Heatherfarms too. NO power in my batterries;(
I also saw the apple moth caterpillar while cutting up an apple from my apple tree.
