Pale Tussock Moth Dasychira pudibunda  15 eggs/10 larvae according to availability

 

The larvae are tufted with the most delightful coloured shaving brushes, with jet black between the segments, which the larva exposes when threatened. There are different larval colour forms. Foodplants are many and include Lime, Hazel, Oak, Willow, Poplar, Birch and others. Cocoons are spun in late summer and the moths emerge in the following spring. Once known as the Hop Dog, the larvae were encountered in the Hop fields when south Londeners migrated in thousands to Kent to gather the season’s crop.
