I had a look at it here

I had a look at it here Douglas:-

I dont think theres any doubt about the ID based on the markings, quite a distinctive pattern, the only challenge would be the slightly worn condition.

Thanks Cathal. Yes I found

Thanks Cathal.

Yes I found that a very useful site while trying to ID all the ones not found in the UK (also have a french moth book) although I don't speak any french!!

Interesting, that map shown on the site for this species doesn't actually include the location where it was caught (which is a bit further South of the other known departments)

Moths are very under-recorder in France and I still haven't managed to find anyone to submit records to.

Best wishes,
