Rusty Tussock Moth

Orgyia antiqua

The Rusty Tussock Moth or Vapourer is a moth in the family Lymantriidae that is native to Europe, but now transcontinental in distribution in the Palaearctic and the Nearctic regions. The orange-brown male flies mostly during the day, but the female is flightless, spending her brief life attached to her cocoon.
