Mouse Moth   Amphipyra tragopoginis.
St. Marcel du Perigord (near Bergerac), Dordogne, France. 15th September 2011
A rather worn specimen, but the vestiges of the three spots on the forewing are just visible, the sheen is characteristic and the behaviour - scuttled away on disturbance - was also supportive.
