Common on red clover
No interactions present.
It's worth adding that Z trifolii is a declining species, and if you look at the most recent maps there are no modern records anywhere near Yorkshire.
I completely agree, but that can also be a dangerous way to start thinking; best to keep an open mind, surely. Take something like the recent discovery of the hoverfly Callicera rufa on sites in southern England, when it had only ever been seen in the highlands of Scotland...

Absence of Evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence . Cromwell is a fairy large expance of grassland with extensive Narrow 5 Spots but I have a feeling that along the river path where there is even more numerous Red Clover Trifoli is present.
Perphaps the fact it is under recorded is the difficulty in actiually telling apart.
Having said that I am still looking for the Bilberry Shieldbug :-) and have nt found it
Here is a video of Narrow 5
Whats Happening ???

The true Five-spot Burnet was until recently a declining species if not on the verge of extinction in my area (Berkshire/Buckinghamshire) but it is currently making a comeback and thus making the identification of burnets much trickier than it used to be! The 'traditional' links to habitat and foodplant seem to be breaking down as well, not sure about flight periods.

Good to Know Martin surely must be a good indicator species of grassland and associated habita in your area
