Unidentified moth / Unbekannter Falter

Can anyone identify this? I don’t take enough photos of insects (all my dragonfly shots have been failures), but this actually came indoors.

This is fairly close.

Now closer – at a German site for identifying moths and butterflies, it looks like Phragmatobia fuliginosa (Zimtbär – Ruby tiger moth – borealis? more brown than red on top).

I really should be doing something else, at least cleaning that floor. The insect has disappeared, so I never photographed its underwings.
