Ornate Tiger Moth (Grammia ornata)
Posted by Mrs. Moosicorn
The Cinnabar Moth is another black and red species often encountered during the day but is in the family Arctiidae with footman and tigers rather than in the Zygaenidae family with the Burnets. The Cinnabar is not strictly a day-flying moth but it is easily disturbed from rest in long vegetation during the day. Adults fly from May to July.
