Yes it's ophiogramma. That little round shock of hair near the dorsal apex and the long curved process from the ventral apex are diagnostic.

I am trying to id a rag of a noctuid - APPEARS to be A. ophiogramma. The attached is a quick image of the male valves (confirming it is NOT O.fractilinia which was my first guess) in hopes that one of you might recognize him. If not I will have to wait until tomorrow to get into the library, and I have trouble sleeping when I have a moth id. in the cooker. I may be becoming an old fart, but the part of me that loves mucking about with the noctuids is still in his early teens, and has no patience at all!!!
Thanks one and all.
