Zygaena angelicae is a species of moth in the Zygaenidae family. It is found in Central Europe, from Greece to southern Germany and Thuringia.[1]

The wingspan is 30–33 mm. Adults are on wing from July to mid August on one generation per year.

The larvae feed on Coronilla coronata and sometimes Securigera varia and possibly Lotus corniculatus. The species overwinters in the larval stage. Larvae can be found from September and, after overwintering, to June of the following year.
