Adscita statices & Melanargia lachensis
The Foresters and Burnets belong to the Zygaenidae - a family which in many respects appears to straddle the gap between butterflies and moths - they are brightly coloured, fly in sunshine, and have clubbed antennae; but they rest with the wings folded down, and they pupate in silk cocoons.
