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 ).
