(Linnaeus, 1758)Wingspan 32-38 mm.
A beautifully-marked moth, with its pinkish spots on a brown background, the Peach Blossom is fairly common in woodland habitats throughout Britain except the extreme north.

The adults fly at night in June and July, and can be attracted by bright lights or a sugar-mixture.
