Scarlet Tiger?

Observed: 15th July 2013 By: greenrosegreenrose’s reputation in Invertebrates
scarlet tiger moth?

I have seen 4 of these moths in this local area in the past few days but I had not been able to get a close enough to identify them. This one was found dead on the pond surface this morning. The colour of the red is quite faded as it has obviously been submerged - the flying specimens are an incredibly bright red!
