First Vapourer

29:th of August 2010
On a mushroom-picking walk in the forest, a rufous Moth comes flying and before I know it lands right in front of me: A Vapourer! Unmistakable with it´s "sad eye" pattern on the back. An interesting species I´ve had on my mind for some time. The female is flightless and builds a cocoon where she lays her eggs on a soft bed of "anal wool". How about that?
