A wonderful Puss Moth as Mark says which was attracted to his Motcombe trap on 9/05/20.

A lovely large furry white moth with black spots on thorax and base of forewings, with one generation May-July.

This species is one that plays dead when handled though this one looked very much alive for its debut as our gallery model.
