The Vapourer

The Vapourer - From UKMoths "An unusual species in many ways, the males fly during the day.
The females are virtually wingless, an attribute normally associated with winter-emerging species, but the adults are out from July to September, sometimes October in the south."

I found this one on the causeway at Bough Beech on the 4th October, I only had the camera-phone with me so I hope the quality is acceptable.
