What's the moth

At last the garden catches are looking reasonable again. There were 16 species last night, most numerous again were the Buff-tips (8). Firsts for this year were a Large yellow underwing, Small angle shades, May highflyer (a bit late and very worn), Green silver-lines, Oak hook-tip, and Foxglove pug. Most puzzling is this one shown below; shape and size and the conspicuous black collar make me think it is a Heart and dart, but the markings are unusual. Can anyone help with id please?

  1. Looking at the black crest on the front of the thorax, this is probably a form of Heart & Dart Tony
