Utetheisa pulchella

Moths are normally drably coloured but the Crimson-speckled Footman is certainly an exception in more ways that one. It hase whitish in colour with numerous reddish-brown and black blotches. It is also a day-time flying moth.

At times this moth is extremely common in an area and at other times it can be totally absent. They like areas of disturbed ground with some flowers and grass.

They can be found in many areas in Africa and distibuted across most of South Africa.
