Insect/Moth ID
« on: July 04, 2010, 07:58:15 PM »
Found 2 of these sunning themselves on the side of my decking, there all day & gone the following morning. Any idea what type of moth they are? they where a good 4 inches in length.

Thanks Harry, they were close to a small privet in a pot so I suppose that is where they came from.
