Is this a Drinker?

Hi all

 

I photographed this moth last week in Gloucestershire when it had taken refuge in a house I was visiting.  I was fascinated by the extraordinary length of the feathery antennae and at first thought it might be one of the eggar family.  On closer inspection to a reference book, I think it might be a Drinker.

 

Can anyone verify this for me please?

 

Alex

    Hello there.

              Yes I think this is quite a light coloured male Drinker Moth Philudoria potatoria.
