    Scarlet Tiger Alert

    The Scarlet Tiger Moth (Callimorpha dominula) is a spectacular day-flying moth found in the South West. Recent sightings seem to show that the Scarlet Tiger is moving into our area. More...

    We have had more records than normal of this species being added to NatureSpot, especially of the larva feeding on Comfrey (and sometimes on Green Alkanet). Please could you check these larval food plants if you come across them as the larvae are about at the moment and the adults will be on the wing soon.
