Stoermeriana aculeata (Lasiocampidae)

Stoermeriana aculeata

Description:

Saw a cocoon develop into this beautiful moth. Missed the emergence, but caught it still with floppy wings. A few days later it started laying eggs. What is strange to me is that it laid its eggs in different places all over.

Notes:
