Was wondering if anyone can tell me if this is a Mottled Pug or not? Not 100% sure thanks

It could be Edinburgh Pug, Eupithrcia intricata millieraria, the location and flight season both fit. I have never seen one but it looks a good match.

Really?

Looks far too contrasting to me, Waring shows a plain, brown thing, the wing shape also looks wrong to me?
 
I've looked into Edinburgh Pug and I think you're right but I think it may be a better match for Freyer's Pug (arceuthata) than Edinburgh Pug (millieraria). Thanks for the help!

I get Freyer's regularly and they are very distinctive, big and quite grey.

Here's a very bad pic of one I caught.

Here's a better shot of Freyer's that I took today, note how grey it is.
