Cinnabar Moths

Cinnabar Moths

These beautiful red and black day-flying moths are found all across Europe & parts of Asia. The caterpillars are poisonous, due to feeding on the poisonous plant ragwort – but these little larvae are also cannibals, often feeding on other cinnabar caterpillars they find on the same plant!
