I think so

I always find this a hard moth to pick out - I've seen very few of them (or at least I've correctly recognised very few of them, perhaps I've missed a lot!). However, this one looks convincing to me.

David, that's a very useful set of images and has helped with another moth I was wondering about. Thanks.
