I have suggested a moth, rather than a butterfly.

Thanks Matthew, after further investigation I think you're right and suggest it's probably a concealer moth.

I'm not 100% sure it is Philobota lysizona, but very similar. I make the suggestion to bring the sighting to the attention of our moth experts.
