Moth perhaps 18 July

moth perhaps 18 July

This pale ?moth was completely still on my lawn when I took pictures. Later it was under hedge, "panting". I watered the ground around it. Later it had disappeared. It seems to have had narrow wings underneath, they do not show up well. About 5cm across.

If you reclassify your entry as "invertebrate" rather than "other organism" various iSpot things will work better and you will attract more relevant experts.

Thanks, you can tell I gave up biology shortly after the germination of the broad bean.
