Plume Moth

Description:

I put other because I have no idea what it is. And I've forgotten what classifies as an Arthropod. I know they have exoskeletons but this doesn't look like it has an exoskeleton. :-D

Habitat:

My living-room wall.

Notes:

Been there for like,... a week. Maybe?

would you please consider adding this spotting to
http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/4649...... The U.K Arthropod Survey as it would be a very interesting contribution. Thanks!

Moved to Arthropods :-) Arthropods include insects, spiders, crustaceans, millipedes, centipedes, scorpians, etc.

Yes, a plume moth.
Most probably it's an Emmelina. There are two species very similar Emmelina monodactyla and Emmelina argoteles. Very difficult to distinguish. Argoteles is a little smaller and more brownish and seems to like water.
Another candidate could be Stenoptilia but I don't think so.
Do you have veronica flowers (preferred by Stenoptilia) or bindweed (preferred by Emmelina) in the surroundings?
Look here:

the various Emmelina and Stenoptilia.

This is a plume moth. They are extremely hard to ID, but should be in the arthropods category since it is a moth.
