Rosy marsh moths and more

It was another productive night on Cors Fochno with 58 species being identified. There were 15 Rosy marsh moths, 34 True lover's knot, 16 Drinker, 13 Garden tiger, also 4 of these very striking Endotricha flammealis:

This wainscot is the size of Large wainscot but lacks the cross line of fine dark dots and is a bit earlier than its normal flight period. Dorset moths web site also has a photo of a Large wainscot without the dots. Could it be anything else?
