Euproctis similis, probably, of the last age (the red pigment is less). But there should be already next generation in junior ages in September, this one seems to be late from the previous brood... Suppose, it's damaged with myco or something (looks unhealthy, faded, with no brushes, in unnatural pose).

Tatiana, did I get it right that you figured out Euproctis similis, or?

Thanks, moved.

Two glands on next-to-last segments mean Lymantriidae, bushy hair and locks of tough hair plus bristles mean Clostera, orange spinal stripes and blacky-grey warts with locks of compound stuff as white fleecy bristles mean Sphrageidus similis (Fuessly, 1775).
