Svetana, if you haven't uploaded it yet, go do it. If you did but I haven't published it yet, so don't.

I've got another photo of this moth wings more spread out. Its size is about 4cm (afraid to be wrong:)) Should I upload that here?

The database has a subgenus so far...

Photo leaves wide range of opinions as you can see neither the actual size of a butterfly/moth nor how its wings are shaped. I wonder if Shargacucullia was resurrected as subgenus or genus or whatever else?

I requested Alexey Matov to look at it and he concluded that this might be Cucullia (now Shargacucullia) verbasci since its wings edged with wide parallel shadowy stripes as against to lychnitis and scrophulariae.

One should be a very profound expert to identify anything judging by this photo. :)
