@bayucca. Thank you so much for all the research you've been doing. Yes, Zygaena lonicerae looks more similar to the one I spotted.
I have done some research and Zygaena lonicerae lives in that area...Please check yourself, I have some troubles to separate the two...http://www.lepiforum.de/cgi-bin/lepiwiki...http://www.lepiforum.de/cgi-bin/lepiwiki...I would also slightly tend to question my first ID...
Thank you bayucca. I've done some research and Zygaena trifolii lives in that area.
I do a very pragmatic ID: Five-spot burnet. I do not have the time to do some research, I just swa 5 spots ;-)...
Thank you Eulalia.
