We trapped this last night and it looks totally different to any Common Marbled Carpet that we seen here before so we were wondering if it is a Dark Marbled Carpet? Any comments most welcomed.

Thanks

The angle on the line on the underside of the wing is pretty rounded so I'm afraid that for me this would be a Common Marbled Carpet.

Thanks Ian, we posted it just in case, at least it's another reference photo of a varied moth for our collection.
