Zygaena viciae (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775)

Zygaena viciae

My first ever sight of the Z. viciae. The third spot is relatively small compared to the fourth and fifth. The wings are slightly transparent.

Very similar to Z. lonicerae and Z. trifolii
The antennas are not that thick and club-like compared to Z. trifolii
The fourth spot is more formed like a square than a spot.
