Dark Chestnut

Thank you both

Now that you have pointed me in the right direction I agree that it is a DarK Chestnut. I took rather a lot of poor photos of this one but they do show the hook tip aspect of the outer edge of the forewing. A couple of the pictures also show a dark leading edge of the forewing with small white markings as in the fifth photo of Other Observations of Dark Chestnut above.
