Flame Carpet (Xanthorhoe designata)
Description:

Came to light left on overnight. Though not as vivid as the colour in Townsend and Waring the colour in the moth was brighter than in the photograph (possibly because of the flash.) The double projection towards the rear outer edge of the coloured band is also indicative of this species.
