Common Carpet?

We had this in our trap yesterday can't seem to ID it, the closest we can get is Common Carpet but we are far from sure! Hoping someone with more knowledge can help us out, thanks!

Cornwall Moth Group

I'm sorry I can't offer an ID but that's a very interesting looking moth that doesn't look anything like Common Carpet to me.
If you look up the Cornwall Moth Group you can post the image on their site.
Good luck!
