ID help please

Can anyone help with the ID of this moth please.  I've posted 2 photos of the same moth - the one on grey card is a better reflection of the actual colours but the one on graph paper shows the size.  Thanks!  (Update:  Is it possible it's a very faded Grass Emerald?)

  1. Hi Sarah, I was going to say it is one of the emeralds. Given the size and shape...even though it's a bit tatty round the edges...I would say it most likely is as you say, Grass.

  2. Thanks for your input, Ina. I just couldn't understand the colouration and it had me stumped for ages.
