Large yellow underwing

Is it maybe the the lesser yellow underwing as the wings appear crossed and not to be showing the yellow underwing from above

The 2 small drak marks near

The 2 small drak marks near the apex of the wing and the different tones in the kidney mark indicate Large YU. The yellow underwing of this group of moths is hidden until the wings are opened
