This moth was taking a nap on our doormat to our balcony door, after taking the picture I helped it on its way to fly to a safer place as my 15 month old son was a little bit too curious...!!
Can someone please identify it for me.
As I know close to nothing about moths and as they all look the same (even to the experts, who however don't admit it), to me it appears as it could belong to some species in Noctuidae that looks a little bit like Blepharita adusta, or perhaps not...
My first thought was dark arches (Apamea monoglypha), but I then suffered an acute lack of confidence and id books to back up my hunch. Internet photos do look similar, but they can be misleading.
