B&M - drinker moth

This hairy beast was found sauntering down our driveway, just before a car was due home. Removed for safety and identification ...

Drinker moth, Euthrix potatoria caterpillar :- It is probably about to pupate, given how lethargic it was, and especially with darkened colouration.
Released to some nice long grass that isn't going to be cut ...

I think that how rare or how common this moth, and therefore the caterpillar, are depends on your area and the vegetation growing there.
It is fairly rare around where I live.
