Title changed thanks to identification by others.
Black wings with no markings and feathery edges. Orange abdomen, black legs and two orange 'blobs' behind the head. Approximately 17mm long. When closed the wings looked like folded fabric. Does anyone know what this very pretty creature is please, I haven't been able to find it.
