Wet night in Port Eynon

A much lower catch last night with all the rain and wind, with the only new species being Phlyctaenia coronata, and the thing below which looks to me like Pearly Underwing, but I would appreciate opinions if possible based on this pic (not a species I've seen before, but the size and shape is right, and in the hand the part of the underwing visible is a sort of pearlescent blue and it does seem to have the white dot at the wing bases per a comment from Mr Stewart on an earlier post in this blog.

Also, the previous night new for the garden and/or year list were Flame Carpet, Pale Mottled Willow, Scallop Shell, Purple Bar and Crescent Dart. 

 Pearly Underwing?
