As i mentioned on the other discussion, I believe this is a Cinnabar Moth (Tyria jacobaeae, Hodges #8113). I have never personally seen this moth in NB, but rather in Cape Breton a few times. I am not sure what its status is in NB. Do check out this link on Bug Guide on the species. It was imported from Europe in order to "control" a species of ragwort (St Jameswort), as the story goes. It would be great for others to confirm this ID.
Correct ID. I have some from NB but they are not common; and from what I have seen,or rather not seen, very rare.
ops just about to mention that ( sorry)denis,i think family arctiids cinnabar
The plant this moth was introduced is Tansy Ragwort, also known as Stinking Willie (Senecio jacobaea ).
I have only seen this moth once in NB, in Saint John. Merv has a picture of that individual.
Lois, where in New Brunswick did you photograph this moth?
