|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Muslin moth, Diaphora mendica, a member of the family arctiidae. There is a strong sexual dimorphism in this species, the female is almost completely white, and does not have those feathery antennae. The latter are used by the male to enhance the detection of female pheromones.|

Hallo Philippe, a high quality picture of this moth. The good sharpness allows to see details on wings, legs, head and antennae.
very appealing invitation itno the microscosm of moths - a widely unknown world of strange beauty, amazing details aken with perfection. A short information about the actual size of the moth would be welcome to complete the interesting notes. With thanks and best regards,
