Am struggling with this Geom.N.E.London

This was the penultimate shot (am) before it did the off!

Of what I assumed to be a Geom? It was c5cm wing span and was very nervous, hopefully there's enough here for an attempt at ID?

Cheers

I reckon it's a Snout (Hypena proboscidalis).

I looked at that group and dismissed it, not sure the wing pattern is right but it could be?
