A white moth, probably the common wave moth, Cabera exanthemata (Lepidoptera: Geometridae).
There are quite a few other simililar-looking wave moths found in the UK:
- Cabera pusaria, the common white wave
- Scopula floslactata, the cream wave
- Scopula ternata, the smoky wave
- Idaea subsericeata, the satin wave
- Idaea straminata, the plain wave
- and the remutata form of Idaea aversata, the riband wave.
