Me too, I'm nearly sure this is right, however the angle is not good to see in details if the pattern is specific. We'll feel easier leaving like this :)

Alexandr, I checked all 8 possible Apotomis before supposing Hedya ochroleucana. Had more doubts about Metendothenia atropunctana, checked it in different sources. Ochroleucana has this very specific in colour and shape light spot (not sure how to name it right)
http://www.lepiforum. ochroleucana,de/ You know better, let it stays in uncertain so far.

Tough to move with such angle. Maybe something different, say, Metendothenia atropunctana or some Apotomis?
