Burnet Companion Euclidia glyphica

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Wingspan 25-30 mm.

One of the few day-flying moths, this species gets its English name from the fact that it is often found in company with Burnet moths (Zygaena spp. ).

It is relatively common in the southern half of Britain, becoming scarcer further north.

It inhabits open woodland, pastures and downland, and the larvae feed on clover (Trifolium) and trefoil (Lotus).
