Sycamore Moth

This moth was actually spotted a couple of days ago, but it’s taken me this long to be able to identify it!  Credit for spotting it actually goes to a family member who saw past the amazing camouflage as they walked past the moth on the wall.

After a lot of research, I’m pretty sure this is a Sycamore Moth – it’s most commonly seen in South Eastern England, although it has been spotted in the South West as well. If the moth can blend in this well on a stone wall, I can only imagine how well it could camouflage itself on a Sycamore tree trunk!
