Brocade

This interesting moth I picked up from a sugar solution last night has taxed me to the limit all morning and I'm giving up on it and throwing it out there for ID help. Whatever it is, I'm sure it's a new one for me so could somebody go ahead and make my day, thanks. I'm tentatively going for Pale-shouldered Brocade...

The rounded, wavy white line where there should be an obvious, sharp W in PsB are against that ID I think?

I might have a quid on Small Clouded Brindle.

Hi Andy. Just like you and your Eyed Hawkmoths I've waited for hours to be put out of my suspense, only for two overlapping replies to come at once...my county recorder has stated most authoritatively that it's Clouded Brindle. I've googled both and I think he's right. Must admit I didn't even include them in my search. I saw one of your Brocade photos on UK moths while I was digging for clues...Dusky Brocade, I think it was.

Both wrong, it's a Clouded Brindle (Apamea epomidion).

Both?

That's what the answer was in post 3 line 2.
