These guys are described as common moths but catching sight of this striking red and black moth is something special.

They fly by day and night. Feeding and resting in messy patches of grass and wastelands but are easily disturbed fluttering up into the sunshine. Their caterpillars depend on the leaves and flowers of the gardeners enemy of Common Ragwort.
