Thanks

Thanks for the suggested ID. I didn't think of a burnet moth that had faded. It does look good for a burnet now you have suggested it.

Thanks

Scales

At this time of year they have quite often lost a lot of their scales and the wings can look transparent.

There look to be six spots to me...pretty sure it is filipendulae.
