|Lead-coloured or (more likely) Clouded Drab, 1/4/17|

Drab, but which sort?
Another reasonable night on April 1st in Wolvercote, Oxfordshire, though nothing out of the ordinary (Brindled Beauty is doing really well this year: eight individuals in and around the trap). I've had a good number of Clouded Drabs this year, and wondered whether the individual pictured, wing length around 18mm, might be a candidate for Lead-coloured? I suspect that, in fact, it's just a Clouded (the wings look a bit pointed, etc.), but thought it worth checking.
