Six-Spot Burnet Zygaena filipendulae
(Linnaeus, 1758)Wingspan 30-38 mm.
This is the commonest of Britain's day-flying Burnet moths, and is found throughout Britain, with a coastal bias in the North.
Occupying meadows, woodland clearings and sea-cliffs, it flies from June to August.
The larvae feed mainly on bird's-foot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus).
