IMG_1652is moth?

Observed: 6th August 2012 By: spacemouses

Found this yesterday. Kept it safely in house to see what it would become. Appox 14 hours later it hasn't changed. I still think it is a moth drying its wings but it seems a long time at it. Found it on ragwort so it well above ground. No sign of a 'case' that it emerged from. It is alive.

I think it's wings would have inflated by now, so the prognosis doesn't look good. As a wild stab in the dark with no confidence at all, could it be an Eggar, so in your part of the country a Northern Eggar ?
