I found these in a large funnel type web of many caterpillars on shrubbery at Rye Harbour wildlife reserve. I've tried to ID them using on line help but failed. Can you assist? They were reasonably hairy but had two distinctive dots as you can see on the thorax.
It is, de facto, a cotoneaster webber moth (the webbing is on Cotoneaster horizontalis).
There are (at least) two species of moth that do this (see http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/Profile.aspx?pid=647). I am just trying to figure out which one is yours (and it might be neither).
They have a more than a passing resemblance to the caterpillar of the brown-tail moth. don't you think?
Any Lepidoptera experts care to chip in?
