Rare moth seen in the Netherlands

Passenger moth

Translated from the Dutch Vlinderstichting entomologists:

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

A day after the report about the plum lappet there was the next spectacular moth observation. On Goeree-Overflakkee island a passenger moth was seen on July 4. This is only the third time ever that this moth has been seen in the Netherlands.

The message came via Twitter from Gerda van Rijn and the attached picture left no doubt: passenger moth.
