Fox Moth Macrothylacia rubi (Lasiocampidae)

Such a big name for a moth! But there it is...

Our cocoon, then pupa, now moth is a female Fox Moth, Macrothylacia rubi (Lasiocampidae) and she is now free to roam in the garden or wherever the fancy takes her.

She's quite a beauty! Thank you, Susan, for all your help!
