Noctuid(?), July, Devon

Moth guide hasn't been successfully used to ID this one, suppose it might be a variable species or just overlooked it. Anyone?

Moth is on my gf's Smiley Face tshirt if you're wondering what the background is.

Clover sp?

A migrant Marbled Clover wouldn't be out of the Q would it or a Shoulder-striped?

Was that dark line obvious from all angles or is it exagerrated from this position?

Firstly, I don't suppose you have a lateral photo of the moth?

Looking at its structure I would suggest that it isn't even a noctuid (which might account for you not being able to find it).

To me it looks more like a notodontid and perhaps a Coxcomb Prominent - but that's just a guess (I've struggled to find an image from the same angle).

That is a remarkably good call young man!

Thanks both. No don't hold me to Noctuidae, I'm super new to moths. Afraid these are the only pics.
