Not at all sure about this ID. It is predominantly fawn with singed black. There is no belt. The eyes are only visable with a lense. There are a series of black dots across the lower part of the wing. Wing tightly closed accept when about to fly. See 'figure of eighty2'when eyes are more noticable. Apologies for the discriptive terms! Is it Figure of Eighty or something entirely different?
