Description:

I am finding this a puzzle. The white markings on side suggest Figure of Eight but wrong season. Yellow Horned is also a possibility but it is rather late for this moth and the markings seem all wrong.
I have posted three photo's. Its normal resting position is shown in 1245 and 1241. 1244 is its shape when just ready to fly.
Your help please.
One other thing. Can I take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the four experts who have been helping me id these moths over the last few weeks. Your help has been invaluable in helping me begin to get to grips with this fascinating hobby.
