White Ermine (Spilosoma lubricipeda)

I always love to find one of these in the moth trap, they are such beautiful creatures.

The White Ermine is such an apt name too, a furry white texture with small black spots, this moth would be at home in the House of Lords!

The White Ermine is widespread and common throughout the British Isles, flying from late May until July. There is occasionally a second brood here in the south if the weather is warm enough in early autumn.
