Pentadaktil very popular among them is simple. And in fact: back to undefined?

Sergei, a number of births is shaped wings, among them there are almost white. Only on the inside of the wings, I would not define pterophoridae and do not advise you :)

Alexandr, sorry, but here can't agree with you. Who said this moth has dark scales on the forewing underside? This might be just poor light (as a result the moth got darkened), so it seems the forewing underside has darken scales whilst the species has actually no any. In the end, the wing shape ideally fits Pterophorus pentadactyla, any other species doesn't go because of the different wing shape.

This incorrect definition, have no Pterophorus pentadactyla dark scales on the underside of the upper wings.

Not identified > Pterophorus pentadactyla / Tentatively identified / Sergey Kotov.
