Thanks David, I did suggest A

Thanks David, I did suggest A pellio as a possibility but was not sure whether there were any similar species it could be confused with. You might want to correct the scientific name.

A pellio

Corrected, thanks! So far as I kow that's the only one with that pattern of white marks. I get it flying into my house occasionally in summer, I think it likes bird nests, feathers, wool etc.
