Identify this lepidopteran?

I think it's a moth? A pretty one? Spotted last week in Gloucestershire.

    Hi,

     

    Yes this is a moth, one of the day-flying moths. Its a burnet, I would say one of the 5 spot burnets, although it may be a 6 spot with 2 merged spots so I'm not 100% sure which one, there is some infomation on all the UK species here http://www.hantsmoths.org.uk/zygaenidae.php which may help, habitat can be a clue as well to which one it is.

     

    hope thats a start,
