Observed: 25th August 2013 By: Little OwlLittle Owl’s reputation in Invertebrates

Large beige/grey moth 2.75 plus inches from head to back end of forewing. Very furry head etc. Two parallel black streaks on each wing. Could it be a Shark Moth? My specimen seems too big according to my insect book! On a car tyre.

Having gone back and managed to get a better look at the underside of the body and looked at other photos I think this could be right. Thank you.
