This is the one most people see. It's easily disturbed in daytime and its distinctive shape makes it a little bit easier to see than some small moths; in fact it's also bigger than most small moths!
I have seen it called a T-moth, for the obvious reason. That seems a much more natural name than "plume" moth, but sometimes, when they land, they do not roll up their forewings, and then you can see something quite different.
