I apologise for the unintended ID above, that was the species I originally thought this was but the Red-green Carpet is right beside Autumnal in the book and I think the pattern is more like it- it is very colourless but I think its it. Couldnt get Autumnal out of my head even after I had discounted that!
You were right first time according to our local expert: Autumn Green Carpet.

Your local expert appears to be correct Steve! Absolutely. Why I (wrongly) discounted it? The book shows a much more pronounced V on the inner edge of the central band than on the above moth and the illustration of Autumnal doesnt have the fine crosslines or discal spot within the central band whereas the illustration of Red-green does. Also the tiny dark forward pointing spike on the inner edge of the central band on yours isnt nearly so dark or pointy on Autumnal in the book, but it is on Red-green?!?
Its clearly a question of only knowing the moth from pictures in a book on my part and not in 'real-life'. The shape of the moth and the absence of darkness to the central band means even a colourless and faded Red-green shouldnt appear like so.
I now apologise for my intended ID above! Times like now I'd love a facility to remove an ID. I'd love to record the moth, love the carpets and havent actually seen this one.
