2069 The Cinnabar Tyria jacobaeae

Wingspan 32-42 mm.

Distribution

Resembling no other British species, except perhaps the burnets (Zygaenidae), this is a fairly common moth in much of Britain.

It is generally nocturnal, but is quite often disturbed during the day from long grass, low herbage etc. At night, it comes to light.

The distinctive larvae, with their yellow and black hoops, generally feed gregariously on ragwort (Senecio jacobaea) and other related plants.


Flight Period is May through July
