Fantastic! Please consider adding it to my "Moths of the World" mission:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8841... Could you also update the ID with bayucca's suggestion? Thank you very much!
Thanks for all the comments.# bayucca thanks for the suggestion ID
love the second photo!
#2 is Zygaena purpuralis:http://www.lepiforum.de/cgi-bin/lepiwiki...
There is obviously no English name, so I put the German one.
I think the caterpillar are actually Tyria jacobaeae, but the moths are not. So you should post them as separate spottings. The moths are both Zygaenidae and Zygaena sp. and #1 is probably Zygaena viciae.http://www.lepiforum.de/cgi-bin/lepiwiki...
The moth and the caterpillar, wonderful
Beautiful spotting and what a lovely colored moth!
