Hola amigos
Esta vez el título va más por mí que por la foto que os enseño. Me he empeñado en buscar el nombre de esta "condenada" polilla (entre comillas porque la pobre no tiene la culpa) y llevo casi todo el día con ella. Lo más que he logrado saber es que es de la familia Crambidae, posiblemente de la especie Psammotis pulveralis, pero no estoy segura. Por eso he decidido publicarla esperando que alguien me ayude con su identidad. ¡Ya no sé dónde más buscar!

Un fuerte abrazo a todos y gracias por vuestra visita.
:o)

Hello friends.
This time the title is rather for me than for the picture that I am posting. I have been looking for the name of this "damn" moth and I have been set on it almost the whole day. The more I have found it's that it is of Crambidae family, probably the species Psammotis pulveralis, but I'm not sure at all. That's why I have decided to post this picture, even if it is not too good. I hope that Peter or anyone can tell me the right id. Please!

My best wishes to you all.
Thank you very much for your visit.

Hola amiga,
no te puedo ayudar,
pero estos bichitos son tan chiquitos, que conocerlos es complicado no??
buena macro y color,
las antenas y cabeza son originales.
saludos y suerte en la búsqueda.

Llevo rato mirando Maite, pero nada. Lo que he visto en Internet en varias fotos de P. pulveralis, es que tiene los ojos bastante saltones y los de la tuya son pequeñitos y tb las alas con más puntitos ( quizás de ahí le viene pulveralis ), Es muy difícil y en tu toma , al estar "plegada" aún cuesta más la ID. Esto de las polillas es un rompecabezas. Yo tengo un par de docenas archivadas sin id para cuando me jubile jajaja
Mira esta web para comparar a ver si te aclara algo http://www.lepidoptera.pl/Countries/CO/Index_P.htm

Un abrazo y suerte

Hola Maite,
Ya os debeis haber hecho muy buenas amigas, de haber pasado el día juntas! :-)
La verdad que yo tampoco tnego la menor idea del ID.
My buena luz y claros detalles los que conseguiste, a pesar de no estar ubicada en un sitio fácil y despejado.
Enhorabuena y gracias por mostrarla.
Un gran saludo,
JM

Hello Maite,

Beautiful composition. Good focus on the butterfly.
I am not home today. I will try to find what it is tomorrow.
Cheers,

Mariki

Hello Maite,
This is an interesting little fellow!
Well captured, great texture in the wings and the colours are well reproduced...
Good light makes the insect stand out well!

Hi, dear Maite, and thanks for sharing.
You have reflected this little moth with great details. I like the sharpness, excellent texture reproduction and natural true colours. Scenery is so attractive and natural too. You have entered us into a fine microcosm. My compliment and best wishes.

Hi Maite . i am sorry i can not help with the ID , But its an unusal looking moth. strange looking head it has. you have captured it with good detail and natural colours. well done TFS.
Nick..

Hola Maite,
Superb sharpness, clarity, natural colour and details of this moth!
very well composed and well done
muchas gracias
Tony

I have been in the same situation as you. Sometimes Ihave to wait 2 or 3 days before I can ID...and in doing so it gives me mjuch greater use of the meanings and methods of presentation. So while it may seem a chore....it is actually learning tool. One by the way which you put to good work in your post. A well exposed (to the digital) image. Fine fun...or work...whichever...

Ciao Maite,
questo Piralide non è molto fotogenico, ma tu sei riuscita lo stesso a renderlo interessante.
Complimenti: è facile fare belle foto a farfalle variopinte, ma spesso le più interessanti sono quelle meno vistose!
Ciao,
Marcello

Hola Maite,
Parece que andas muy bien de vista para haber localizado en medio de la hierba a esta pequeña palomilla. Buenos detalles y exposición. Sin duda una muestra de la riqueza de la naturaleza en todo un reto para quien pueda ponerle nombre.
Saludos cordiales,

I cannot help on the ID of this moth.But I do see some similar around here too.
I like to see all of nature, so yes this is good Maite.
Enjoy your week.

Hello Maite ! That's a strange insect ! Great subject, good sharpness and very good exposure. Well done !

Mario

Hola Maite,
Excelente toma de buena definición y mucho detalle como en todas tus fotos, por lo que veo le estás cogiendo el gusto de fotografiar también las mariposas nocturnas; siento no poder ayudarte en la ID. Un cordial saludo
José Ramón

Hola Maite, lovely moth with great details and excellent sharpness, sorry, I don't know specie, very well done, ciao Silvio

Maite,
Looks like it is a "night" prowler type MOTH. "batu" will know its ID.
Great focusing job.
Excellent clarity.
I too have this Moth in my library.... no ID.... hence, have not posted it. Will wait and do further research.
Most friendly regards,
Mario.

Pues si eres cabezota para todo...ya me imagino a tu novio comprándote otra cámara...je,je.
Bueno me consuela saber que no soy el único que pasa por estas dificultades a la hora de identificar una flor o una planta. A veces ocurre que hojeando manuales sobre flora, me quedo embelesado mirando las fotos de otras que no tienen nada que ver con las que busco.
A veces tardo en publicar porque no me gusta hacerlo sin poner una ligera notita al menos.
Bueno, espero que tengas "suerte", verás que sí, e identifiques esta polilla.
Saludos desde Gran Canaria, Juan Luis.

Hello Maite,
Good shot for a photo not easy, good composition and detail
well done

Hello Maite,
What a bizzard moth! Excellent details and lovely colours. Beautiful light.
Best wishes,

Hello Maite,
Nice shot on this moth. A strange species that you find during day time. Nice image. POV and composition are great. Very well done.
JC

You are being quite funny in your note, Maite!
I can understand your frustration at not being able to be 100% sure about the ID of this moth.
Nevertheless, the species you have captured is quite unique. Maybe the light is a bit harsh, but the presentation is very nice.
TFS and regards.

Hi Maite,
You sound just a bit frustrated with this one, pig-headed fits the moth..and your efforts to ID it. There are just too many species of these da#m things ;}

Hello Maite


Very good POV and DOF.
The focus is sharp and shows excellent detail.
The lighting is well done,and the warm colours are well saturated.
Even these plain moths deserve their day on TN.

Hola Maite,
It was difficult to find an image in Your gallery which I didn't comment yet. :) This one is simply great, showing the habit of the moss well with great sharpness and nice warm color tones (on the whole pic). Not being a moth fanatic I can't write anything scientifical - only my personal feeling that I find this photo quite fair.
Gracias, saludos, László
