Nearby too?

Petr! As far as I know by many shots at different websites, Vitaly didn't shoot in Russian North or Northwest. All shots were made in his village house in Moscow region. Move to comae.

Most probably Moscow region, but I asked Vitaly to check it, just in case.

"...Also, Sungaya is Alexandr Boldyrev who is one of authors. Hope, he will make it clear".
Personally, I can't make it clear cause I'm not a pro either don't know why it's signed as griseata, or the shot location. If we're talking about this species and if it can be in Moscow region, as far as I know from special sources I've got, there can be only comae in Moscow region. So this question should be posed to the very author of this photo.

There is the next quotation: "Not so lately there was published Kaila and Albrecht work [Kaila, Albrecht, 1994] revisioned this group. Authors showed that Т. griseata can be only in limited areas such as the south part of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Baltic States and Northwest Russia (Leningrad region, Karelia). All info about Т. griseata met in other European regions included Russia, also West Siberia (Novosibirsk region) and Turkmenistan should be considered as T. comai, Schmidt, 1931, what was described from Spain as Т. griseata version". Quoted: Vasylenko S. V. Timandra griseata, Petersen, 1902 (Lepidoptera, Geometridae) found in Siberia. Euroasian Entomological Journal (7(2): 180–181.).

To be right, in Moscow region there's Timandra comae, A. Schmidt, 1931.
Looking at
Also, Sungaya is Alexandr Boldyrev who is one of authors. Hope, he will make it clear.

No info about shot location, but seeing at author's it should be Moscow region. I'm not an expert in Geometridae, but Evgeny Tsvetkov (Saint Petersburg) thinks there can be only Timandra comae in Central Russia.
