Narrow Bordered

Although care should be taken in separating Narrow-bordered and Five-spot Burnet, I wouldn't go so far as to say that they cannot be distinguished as adults. This example shows strong characteristics of Narrow-bordered (subspecies latomarginata though not insularis which is the Irish subspecies).
