Thanks Charlie - I am a slow learner with micros..... so easy to make errors and hate the guess work ! so I appreciate the help.

Well said - IDing micros isn't a guessing game, too many photos on the web are dodgy IDs.
Your 2nd pic illustrates nicely why U. sequella is also known as the rabbit moth - because of the rabbit's head on its back.
