Narrow-bordered five-spot burnet

Zygaena lonicerae

A burnet with a wingspan of 30-46 mm, resembles the five-spot but with more distantly-spaced forewing spots and a narrower dark margin on the hindwings. This moth lives in coastal areas, cliffs, open woodland, grassland, and mountain valleys. Host plants include peavines (Lathyrus spp.), vetches (Vicia spp.), birdsfoot-trefoils (Lotus spp.), sainfoin (Onobrychis spp.), and clovers (Trifolium spp.). This species flies June through August.
