Got waylaid with this image as I do know what a Burnet looks like but didn't know what
a Burand looks like.
Couldn't find an image of a Burand -just lots about papers and books written by Burand.
So Carol if you find out, let us know as this is not my field of expertise!!!
They are very distinctive and seem to have large antennae.
so you've got my interest.

I think it's a transparent burnet, Carol, which you can see here, although Annette's suggestion of zygaena osterodensis looks good, tooSmile.
