puss moth

The dark colours of this one show that it is about to pupate, which is probably why it's crawling around on the ground rather than feeding up in a tree. They make amazingly camouflaged cases around themselves so that in the end the pupa just looks like a faint lump on the surface of a branch or other piece of wood.
