Which Beauty again, with measurements

Observed: 7th July 2013 By: snjstuartsnjstuart’s reputation in Invertebrates
Which Beauty 2
Description:

Wing is approx 23mm. There are three white lichen dots in front of it, which I have located on my wall. The gap between the far left and far right ones is 26mm. Difficult to allow for perspective, but it works out iro 23mm. I'm guessing that is inconclusive!
This is a slightly different photo. If anyone can work it out from antenna alone, the original file is very high res, so plenty of detail. Let me know if antenna close up needed (although if you view full size photo it's pretty good)

That sounds about right to

That sounds about right to me. It's a big moth and your photo shows enough detail to be sure of its ID.
