Pyrausta purpuralis

Same reason I posted earlier on the P.aurata observation. But I may not have put it that well. This is what the UK moths site says: On P. purpuralis the postmedian markings can form a continuous broad band, but it is usually broken into three substantial marks. The mark near the dorsum is always much more substantial than that, if any, on P. aurata, and turns towards the base of the wing as it approaches the dorsal edge.
