Moth ID please Goldie

Postby Goldie M » Fri Nov 10, 2017 4:10 pm

I took this photo of a moth whilst on holiday in Kent at Temple Ewell , I'd like to know it's ID to add to my list of Moths, I've looked it up in UK Moth's and wonder if I've got the right name for it," Pemmene aurana" , I know very little about Moths but like to take shots when I see one and get to know what it's called. Goldie :D

Looks like Pyrausta aurata to me. (I am no expert on micro's either!)
