Moth ID

Can anyone identify this moth?  We think its a copper underwing but aren't sure

    It's a copper underwing, Amphipyra Pyramidea. It took me a bit of time as there is a very close relative called a Svensson's Copper Underwing, Amphipyra Berbera which is still common so it was very hard to tell!

        I know I don't know either because the only way tell the difference between the two is by dissecting them and I wouldn't do that personally but I thought you just wanted to know what fairly exact species it was
