I seen this moth last year in my garden, I have never seen one before, unfortunately it was died. you say it is a common insect I have never hard of it, I wonder if I will see it this year! it was nice to see your picture, because it reminded me that I had seen one like it.

The Ruby moth is beautiful  , I first  saw one a few years ago and have not seen one since .The iridescant  sheen of the partly closed  wings has come out well . When its wings are fully open, apart from its plumpish tummy it can be mistaken for a very attractive  butterfly. Just shows what beauty lies beneath the wings!

My son has found a caterpillar which is black & very hairy. We live in the North East England. We have tried to research what type this is & we think it may be a Ruby Tiger Moth caterpillar ???

It might be Tracey. But it might not be, there are many. Have you a photo?
