Male Oak Eggar

Having photographed the female Oak eggar that emerged from her pupa last week, the last of the four emerged yesterday afternoon and is a male. If you compare it with my post from last week you will see that the male is darker with more striking contrast in the markings between the chocolate brown and the yellow markings.
