Oh yeeees! Easier to see in this shot Lilith, than the photo forum one. Didn't realise it was here too.
It IS a six spot burnet - day flying moth with a fondness for knapweed, scabious and, apparently, jasione

Yes, i think they're pretty common. I don't know whether they're poisonous or not. They certainly wear the right uniform LOL

It reminds me of the cinnabar moth, imported to control the tansy ragwart.

Yes, they're similar colouring but different markings tigrelily. I just love the caterpillars of the cinnabar in their striped black and yellow football (not sure if they play soccer or rugger) jerseys :)
