Added: 14th August 2012 Description:
looks like a 5 spot burnet but has yellow spots.
Confidence: It might be this. Notes: I'm suggesting Narrow-bordered Five-spot Burnet, yellow form as I have read that this is the only yellow form of Five-spot.(ssp. citrina?)
Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be. Notes: Yellow forms occur in all 3 of our common Burnet species, so yellow colouring doesn't secure an ID. Furthermore, the colours shown here are typical of a rather worn adult moth. For a "5-spot", late July is a fairly late date and what would be red spots fade down to a pinky shade. Yellow forms also have yellow underwings which should show through on such a worn speciemen.
No interactions present.
