CinnabarMothOnTeasel

Update: I originally identified this as a Cinnabar moth (hence the title of this post) but clearly I wasn't paying enough attention! Thanks to the commenters who very quickly set me straight. It is in fact a Six-spot Burnet moth.

It and several others was seen on Teasels at Butterfly World on the far side of the lake.

  1. I think that’s a six spot burnet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six-spot_Burnet not a cinnabar moth. Cinnabar moths have a stripe of red down the outside of the wing.

  2. I agree with you Mags. An easy error to make.

  3. Well don’t I feel foolish! You’re clearly right – I just wasn’t paying enough attention. I will update the post immediately before I spread any more misinformation. Thanks for setting me straight to quickly!

  4. Don’t feel foolish, as I said, it is an easy mistake to make.
