Tawny

In that part of North West London which is close to where I trap nearly all the 'dark' MM agg moths I have had dissected have proven to be Tawny Marbled Minor so I think this would be a good candidate for that species. However dissection would be necessary for a safe ID so leaving it as aggregate is the best approach.
