Svetlana, I've got it :) It's OK.
My wingspan data was not about correction at all, it's just for the site users' information. We measure wingspan for adequately mounted lepidopterans only (bottom line of the forewing is vertical to the body line).

I'm sorry :-) I meant not wingspan as it generally accepted (it is bigger, of course) but wingspan at this particular position.

FYI :)
Seams like it is the only species of this genus in Russia (Синев, 2008). Wingspan 16-24 mm (Russian eighth region).
