SHC

SHC has a different pattern, with creamy triangles extending in from edge of wing. I don't know Triple-spotted Clay well, a moth I rarely see, but it is very similar to Double Square Spot. This is paler than the latter which I catch, so it may be the former?

Doubt

I totally agree! Don't know why I did not add it like that myself!

Yes, certainly some doubt.

Yes, certainly some doubt. But as I said it probably would agree with your ID. The reddish tint and fairly narrow forewings do suggest ditrapezium if going on the classic literature. But I think I read something recently about there being lots of confusion between the species, something about gender I think - the females of one species often being confused for the other or something along those lines...

Best wishes,
