Small Eggar

My first ever Nb. moth! Found it on my way home from school, makings it's way across the lane. I immediately thought Small Eggar as I've recently ID'd them for my Aunt, when she's been at her holiday home in Dorset, although I wasn't 100%. But Peter has just confirmed it (thank you!), making it the first record for many many years!

Hoping to keep it 'til it pupates and then hatches, but I've read that can take 7 years in captivity. But hopefully it'll hatch sooner though!
