The burnet companion moth (Euclidia glyphica) gets its English name from the fact that it is often found in company with Burnet Moths as well as the Mother Shipton. One of the few day-flying moths, it is found on flowery meadows in most of the Palearctic realm, from Ireland in the west to Mongolia and Siberia in the east and south to the Mediterranean and North Africa. The burnet companion has warm grey-brown forewings, sometimes with a purplish tinge, with two darker brown bands crossing them and a dark splotch near each wingtip. The hindwings are bright orange-yellow with dark wavy lines.
