Underpass moth -Thought it may be a small quaker but markings not right, could be due to darkness, think it may be something else?

I think I'd be tempted to pin

I think I'd be tempted to pin it down to an Orthosia sp.
its just how it's resting with its wings slightly splayed rules out conistra vaccinii? though I have seen Chestnut's look nothing like they do it Warring and Townshed. its to worn to see the dark mark inside the kidney.

Chestnut?

I've gone for Chestnut above as I don't think I can see any of the straight line with gives Orthosiae (is that the correct plural form?) their name.

Could easily be wrong on this one though.
