Orange Underwing ID

Hi David and thanks for your comments. I decided it was not the Light Orange because the antennae were serrated rather than feathered. I apppreciate this is not visible in the shot I posted but the moth settled for some time and could be studied closely.

Thanks. Since you have now reported the relevant feature from field observations I can agree the ID. Always worth adding such notes to the ID when you put it up I would suggest.

Yes I'll try and remember to include any relevant ID comments next time I post. The image here was taken with a Canon 100 - 400mm lens from a distance of around 1.5M as I didn't have a macro lens with me at the time hence this detail cannot be seen.
