143588 The Lappet Gasteropacha quercifolia Length 40mm. An amazing moth whose colour, and wing shape and pattern, make it look like an autumn leaf. Adult has reddish wings with scalloped margins; the palps on the head project as a ‘snout’. Flies June–August. Larva is among the largest in Britain (up to 10cm long); feeds on Hawthorn and superbly camouflaged when resting lengthwise along twig. Common only in southern England.
