I think you have this categorised as a bird, so it might be useful to edit and change that!

May Highflyer

Thanks for your help, Moremoth - it's no wonder that I struggled to id it from the literature I've got because it looks so dramatic in comparison. Best wishes.

Hi Stephen

If you open your post, you'll find there's an option to edit your entry. You can then change it from birds to invertebrate, so it doesn't keep coming up as the former.
Really nice moth; I'm no expert, but it seems to me that you're spot on in your identification.
