(Euproctis similis -female) The female is larger than the male, and has a large tuft of yellow hairs at the tip of her abdomen, which is used to cover the newly-laid eggs. It flies in July and August, occupying a number of habitats, and is relatively common in England and Wales. It is found throughout Europe as far as the Urals, then east across the Palearctic to Siberia, and also found in Sri Lanka. It is also known as the "Goldtail Moth" or the "Swan Moth".
