Moved
Moved from ID Request. Looks it based on the coloration. If you could approximate the length of the moth with a thread count of the sheet you photographed it on, the ID will be more certain. A. shlaegeri is quite a bit larger than A. leucillana but there is some overlap around 12mm (I don't remember the exact ranges but it's something like that.)
