Probably Adscita geryon

Cistus Forester
Sonnenr飉chen Grnwidderchen

For this ID speaks the place and the altitude where this Zygeanidae-species has been seen.

I have seen this gathering of Procridinae at altitude 2000m. I'm not sure a 100% about the ID.
On the shot they seem to be two males and a female.

Thanks to Peter Stoeckl for his suggestion of ID. Cf his comment.

Hi Anne
beautifully composed with the right yellow flower complements
the beauty of those three shiny moths.
Excellent color resolution and indeed an attraction.

Hi Anna.
You have shared a very charming quartet. Location of the moths on a flower is very attractive. DOF is simply great and all beautiful gathering is on focus and detailed perfectly. Nice job and best wishes from anxious Ukraine.

Bonjour Anne

Superbe timing pour avoir ces 3 insectes en m瘱e temps dans la m瘱e photo,
qui devient en aussi une photo environnementale pour ces insectes, excellent POV et DOF,
superbe focus, nettet, et d彋ails, excellent contraste entre les tons de couleurs, TFS


Hi Anne,
Very interesting photo. A trio of dark moths on a harsh yellow flower... the best contrast ever! :-) Exceptional macro shot, almost everything seems in focus (excellent DoF), and I like the squared crop very much, too. Pleasant pic with great light management, a unique shot. Bravo Anne!
Best regards, L嫳zl

Liebe Anne,
gleich drei von diesen kleinen Juwelen auf einer Arnika! Eine Freude zu sehen, wie reich und unverdorben die Natur auf Euren Bergwiesen ist.
Grnwidderchen sind in der Tat schwer auseinanderzuhalten. Eher fr das "Sonnenr飉chen-Grnwidderchen (Adscita geryon)" spr踄hen hier die H鐬enlage von 2000m und die keulenf顤migen, deutlich gefiederten Antennen der beiden abgebildeten M鄚nchen.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss,
