It's a Meal Moth - a pyralid.

Actually, it's by Sterling & Parsons - Lewington provided the illustrations (Field Guide to the Micro-Moths of Great Britain and Ireland Paperback – 30 May 2012) - but so often people just look aat the pictures..

Ken, I caused a stir in Cornwall last year claiming several False Mochas. It wasn't my fault the now locally well-established Jersey Mocha wasn't in my first edition Lewington.

.......sometimes after having leafed diligently through Lewingtons leaving nothing to chance and not finding the culprit, I've called on this forum for ID only to find I'd missed the bugger, leading me to believe that I should stick to Birding for my salvation.

I'm loving the innocence of being an absolute beginner in moths and slowly acquiring a modicum of competence week by week. Another short story on the same theme as your quote above: two summers ago, I did just as you said, leafing back and forth, back and forth, only to give up and consult the local expert. It was an Orange Swift - the first moth in the book!
