Observed: 9th July 2011 By: KittyLover543

The moth was seen sitting on the ground beside our apartment. We moved it so it is now on a chair. He is orange and furry, and has a yellow buttocks. His wings are orange like him. He appears to be very dormant.

Was this photo in the UK?

Was this moth definitely found in Dumfries? as it does not look like a British species

No, I actually don't know why

No, I actually don't know why it says it is. It was found in America and I have no idea what it species it is. I'll fix the location.
