[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Puss Moth Cerura vinula
(Linnaeus, 1758)

Wingspan 45-70 mm.

Named after the cat-like appearance of the adult moth, this species is fairly common throughout most of Poland.

The striking caterpillar feeds on aspen (Populus tremula) as well as poplar (Populus spp.) and willow (Salix spp.). When disturbed, it raises its head and waves the twin tails, which have pinkish extendable flagellae.
