A well-marked Rustic sp

Could somebody please make my day and tell me that the attached Rustic is something other than a Square-spot or Flounced Rustic.

OK, thanks. Still struggling to pick out Mottled, Six-striped and Heath Rustics from the commoner species.

I think six striped will be over now and heath maybe not yet started for us. Saying that, I've not run the trap much lately.
