July Highflyer

Observation - July Highflyer - UK and Ireland. Description: This carpet-sized moth was attracted to the lights last night. The wing ground-colour was very distinctly silvery - more so than it looks in the photo. Silver-ground Carpet doesn't look right and neither does Clouded Silver, so I'm a bit lost - help pleas

This carpet-sized moth was attracted to the lights last night. The wing ground-colour was very distinctly silvery - more so than it looks in the photo. Silver-ground Carpet doesn't look right and neither does Clouded Silver, so I'm a bit lost - help please! Thx for the id - a well-worn specimen.
