Name this moth

One sunday morning last September I persuaded my son and daughter to visit the wood with the fungus crowd. By which I mean the Nottinghamshire Fungi Group. They really were a crowd, about 20 of them trooped up into the wood with text books in hand ready to identify mushrooms.

Then our Edward spotted this creature on some brambles at his feet. I am glad that I stepped aside and let Richard Rogers take this lovely picture.

It reminds me of insects I've seen in Malaysia, except this was on the outskirts of Nottingham in the autumn.

Can you identify it ? Click here to find out.
