Male moved.

The previous photo also should be moved. Genus added and approved.

09.02.2011 12:58, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Added Nothus genus based on http://www.nhm.ac.uk/jdsml/research-curation/research/projects/lepindex/checklist.dsml?searchPageURL=index.dsml&UserID=&UserName=&sort=SCIENTIFIC_NAME_on_card&Current_superfamily=Geometroidea&Current_family=Sematuridae&Current_subfamily=&Current_tribe=&recLimit=500. So, that is Nothus lunus male, Linnaeus, 1758, and its female on #4991 photo. Both should be moved.

Species is ok, for sure, but what about genus, huh?

06.02.2011 17:45, Peter Khramov

Evgeny, new species needed (to add and approve).

Yes, its male and female (4992), but Sematura or Nothus? http://www.guianensis.fr/photos_sematuridae.htm#top.

29.01.2011 13:22, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Sematura lunus male, Linnaeus, 1758 (not 100% sure).

29.01.2011 13:10, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Something so close to #4991.
