Irina, many thanks, larvae indeed look different, moving it.

This pic of L. fumida larvae may be useful: Back then we had a talk with local entomologists about Lymantria species in Primorye, 3 species were mentioned as most common, namely Lymantria dispar, Lymantria monacha and Lymantria mathura, and for Primorye there was Lymantria dispar asiatica. Neither heard anything of fumida in Russia. Maybe, Vladimir Stepanovich doubted too if consider "_quest" as "question".

Turns out we'll move it to Lymantria dispar anyway. L. fumida is distributed in Japan, Korea and China, no info about Russia. Waiting for disproof.

So again I've been collating this shot and one of Lymantria dispar, can't see the difference. Anybody please explain?

It reads in full Lymantria fumida_quest. Don't know what "_quest" means.

Whilst Vladimir Stepanovich is highly competent, the moth condition makes it quite hard to suppose anything. Sinev's Catalogue and Far East identification guides vol. 5, part 4, don't mention this species in Russia, there is grisescens as well.
The larva looks very likely to be Lymantria dispar. Didn't manage to find larvae of the two species mentioned above. Don't insist on anything, just drawing attention. :)
