Once again Dave, you amaze me! This was totally new to me, I can't remember ever having heard of this species.....But I must admit that I mis-remember a lot of things in my seniority!!

Thats a beautiful moth! Although I'm not a fan of the household moth as they love to eat cashmere! So there's moth repellent in my wardrobes!
