Ok, photo moved, species activated.

08.02.2011 17:17, Evgeny Komarov This species is identified correctly.

08.02.2011 13:15, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Done (considering the last comment).

08.02.2011 1:52, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Agyrta auxo (Linnaeus, 1767), finally.

08.02.2011 1:45, Alexandr Zhakov

Agree, very noticeable. Then Linnaeus, 1767, Sphinx genus.

08.02.2011 1:36, Dmitriy Pozhogin

No!! micilia is rather different.

08.02.2011 1:27, Alexandr Zhakov

Confusing, confused: This is Agyrta micilia (Cramer, [1779]).

08.02.2011 1:25, Dmitriy Pozhogin

What a world! All crew is identifying not butterfly but the very author!

08.02.2011 1:23, Vasiliy Feoktistov

That's the very it.

08.02.2011 1:14, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Hey, I've got it, but what about author???

08.02.2011 1:12, Vasiliy Feoktistov

08.02.2011 1:09, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Yes, looks very similar to! Even red hatted. Author is Linnaeus, 1767, though.

Agyrta auxo, Hübner, 1817.
