Just added the data to species descriptions. Now you can see more real info of species expansion in Russia.

Maria, now descriptions of Russian species are sourced from European references, which tend to err quite often. I'll soon reprint here some info of Catalogue of the Lepidoptera of Russia, that is more reliable on the subject. Some of those data already used in our catalogue (Russian regions selection), yet not for species descriptions.

What's about that there is no Russia in the species description? Neither it's included, nor excluded.

Phew. This one has "wool". Moved.

The "wool" on wing edges is white here, whilst A. stigmosalis, I guess, does not have such...

Amaurophanes stigmosalis, maybe? Has alike light spots on upper wings... Sadly, just this angle shot.
