In line with Tom's new thinking on Agonopetrix heracliana / ciliella, I have lumped them together below. They are unidentifiable without dissection. He has sampled some recently and found gen detted heracliana with 5 lines in the hindwing cillia, supposedly a ciliella feature?

Back to the drawing board...

Nice catch Stewart, I'm struggling for Dotted Border so far and Mottled Grey doesn't really exist in VC30!
