Caught in web

I saw this moth caught up in a web (already dead).

Found it in the hide at Lintrathen Loch central Scotland, in mid July.

Sorry it's such a poor picture but it was against the light and this was the best image I managed.

What's the chances.... and anyone know what the other insect is?

Wondered about Dark Arches?
