    Saw this today on a walk high in the mountains of Sierra Espuña. Had a quick look on Wikipedia but didn't find it. Anyone know what it is?

    P.s (Think it was dead :().

    Jersey tiger moth ? This moth only lasts a day which might explain it looking a bit tired...

    Apparently it's likely to be Atlantarctia Tigrina. So put that in your pipe and smoke it :LOL:.
