Double-striped Pug Gymnoscelis rufifasciata

This has to be on of my favourite pug moths with its Tartan-like patterning and colouring. It has a wingspan of 15 to 19mm.

The adult flies in two generations, March to May and July to August. Found in a wide range of habitats, including parks and gardens. A resident species, common and widespread. The larva feed on the flowers of a variety of plants.
