The Gooseberry or Magpie moth is often mistaken for a butterfly. The moth usually appears in the middle of the summer and continues until autumn. The wings of the moth have a white background with patches of black. At the base of the forewings is a yellow patch and near the middle there is a band of yellow between two rows of black spots.
