Red spotted moth to identify
Observed: 14th June 2011 By: Claypaws
Added: 16th June 2011
About 1.5 cm long. Wings iridescent black with prominent pinkish red markings. The iridescent black can appear blue or green depending on angle of light. The red is very prominent in flight, looking like a red band around the body where the wings are attached. Spends a lot of time flying over plants without landing. They were locally abundant close to the site of observation. Can anyone identify?
