Ecaille Chinée

Les couleurs vives de ce papillon préviennent ses prédateurs de sa toxicité. Le jour, l'écaille reste cachée et ne sort la plupart du temps qu'à la nuit tombée (cependant on peut parfois les observer en plein jour). Les chenilles sont très velues, comme des hérissons (d'ailleurs les allemands les appellent "ours"). Ces chenilles hivernent, et se développent sur des plantes basses telles que le pissenlit

Please, add both names including the Jersey Tiger as Common name. And in this case the the trinomial name is important since it is almost an endemic species: Euplagia quadripunctaria rhodosensis.
