Yury, neither head, nor the fringe perplex me. Moreover, I see twin brother (or sister) of mine recently added here, see With the same head outward, just check.

Hypsopygia costalis Timandra comae.

Despite all the author's stands about sure IDs of the photos, this is definitely not Hypsopygia costalis, and even not Pyralidae at all. As for Timandra comae, it's absent in Jugoslavia according to the Catalogue, or it just wasn't catalogued. This image of Hypsopygia costalis still differs from Timandra comae version. Ira, look at its head, it's stretched, which we can't see in any photos of mine, neither in yours. It's hidden everywhere, can't be seen from above, also the fringe is of another colour. Only might be some ssp?

This Timandra seems to have happened to be put in Hypsopygia costalis. This is rather Timandra comae.
