The Plumed Prominent (Ptilophora plumigera). A rich chestnut-coloured moth with a fuzzy head. This one, with feathery antennae tucked by the side of its body, is a male (females have non-feathered antennae). It flies late, typically in November (today is November 8th). The larval foodplants are maples and sycamores.
