Description:

This gorgeous moth came to the lights the other night - apart from being pretty definitely a Noctuid, I can't find anything like it in my supposedly comprehensive field guide. It's the longitudinal light borders that seem odd. Length about 18mm (the silver thing is a nail head). Any ideas?
