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.

Confusing, confused: http://www.nic.funet.fi/pub/sci/bio/life/insecta/lepidoptera/ditrysia/noctuoidea/arctiidae/ctenuchinae/agyrta/index.html#micilia. This is Agyrta micilia (Cramer, [1779]).

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

08.02.2011 1:23, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Agyrta auxo, Hübner 1817: http://www.eol.org/pages/10931486, female.

08.02.2011 1:14, 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

That's the very it.

08.02.2011 1:10, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Found author here: http://www.passions-papillons.com/Arctiidae/arctiidaeguyct.html#auxo.

08.02.2011 1:09, Dmitriy Pozhogin

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