Latin name

You need to add a Latin name, add a revised ID enter the common name and press "get recommended" for the Latin name. It is this name that truly ID's your posting and links it to others on iSpot etc.

Calliteara pudibunda

The photos I've found of this species show a much yellower body to the larva; but I suppose a certain amount of colour variation has to be allowed for. It certainly doesn't seem to resemble any other moth.
