Also had this Notocelia, looks more like rosaecolana to me but would appreciate an experts eye.

  1. Hello Darren, sorry - nearly missed this query. I think you are correct with rosaecolana (the strigulae on the costa are at a more oblique angle than those of trimaculana). Nice to get Bordered White in the garden!
