I would appreciate any suggestions on the ID of the attached moth, which is about the size of a Common Quaker.
It's a male Bee moth, Aphomia sociella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae; Galleriinae).
See UK Moths page here: http://ukmoths.org.uk/show.php?id=152
They are somewhat variable in their markings.
Paralipsa gularis (stored nut moth) is similar but would be more unusual in the UK (http://ukmoths.org.uk/show.php?id=4758).
Many thanks for your assistance.
