The "Systematic list of" Macrolepidoptera "of Moscow region" (last edited on January 19, 2011) by Vlad Proklova T. griseata is not at all as a species. So as it is not present here:
In my opinion suburban certainly necessary to carry comae. And on this specimen. I put the point is already clear.

Basil, on that page, here are a visual difference, I would say all three comae, and this exactly comae.

Alexander, here is the link:
It shows a very interesting quote in this regard. I repeat here:
"More recently came the work of Kyle L. and A. Albrecht [Kaila, Albrecht, 1994] dedicated to the audit of the group. The authors have shown that T.griseata found only in a limited area - in the south of Scandinavia, the Baltics and Northwest Russia (Leningrad, Karelia). All information on the findings of T. griseata in other regions of Europe, including the European part of Russia and in Western Siberia (Novosibirsk region.) And Turkmenistan, according to these researchers [Kaila, Albrecht, 1994] should treat T. comai Schmidt, 1931, which has been described as a variation of Spain T. griseata " (original spelling). There are already is not a valid reference to the work itself.
On this basis to griseata here include only one photo of Boris Laryushin:

Basil on mobiole talked about the visual difference species of this genus with a high percentage of accuracy and cited examples of photos (if I remember correctly :), really do not remember what the topic may at Sterrhinae).

Comae all the same in my opinion? I raised the issue of half-forgotten. According to some reports griseata only likely in the region 8. And significantly, these two types differ only in the genital.

Instead comae? I will not touch them yet.
