Rare moth, discovery in the Netherlands


This is a plum lappet video.

Translated from the Dutch entomologists of the Vlinderstichting:

Very rare moth discovered in Baarn

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Last weekend there was a dramatic message via Twitter. It was a beautiful, large and very striking moth, a plum lappet. This species had only been seen a few times in the Netherlands and had been absent during the last 15 years altogether.
