My daughter recently informed me of a bug that she had found on the garden fence , it had four legs and a possible two more that trailed behind its body . its main body shape formation was in the shape of a letter T . However , i am not sure if part of its body was wings.
I would be very grateful if you could inform me what it is
Many Thanks

Dear Andrew,
This is a Plume Moth in the family  Pterophoridae.  Like other insects, the Plume Moth actually has three pairs of legs, and the crossbar of the “T” is actually two pairs of wings.

    I also found one of these, but funny is, that I found it on Budapest airport. I thought: WTF is this? Baby Boeing? 🙂
