Hi Luciano,
I can't to help you ID. This species isn't attractive for photo because have poor colours, is pretty small but I think is rare on TN.
Regards, Pawel

Ciao amico Luciano, an awesome macro of this day-flying two-spotted Clearwing Moth (Dysauxes punctata) (family: Sessiidae) which the spot pattern shows some variation. Great dorsal POV with neat details and excellent lit MF!
TFS and have a great WE!

Hi Luciano,
Bayram already answered the question! I love the "painting" image of this photo and the fresh green background.

Hello Luciano,
Great photo of this moth. The sharpness and details are excellent. Beautiful natural colours. Good dorsal POV and central composition.
Have a great weekend,

Preciosa Luciano, un bello documento.


Ciao Luciano, sorry, mai vista prima, ma vedo che l'amico Bayram ha già risolto il quiz, deliziosa falena molto ben ripresa, qualità eccellente come tuo solito, dettagli sorprendenti tenendo conto delle dimensioni, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
An excellent close macro of Dysauxes ancilla, (fam. Arctiidae), a species that is only found in one place in my country. Sergio is correct in his ID.
Technically this perfect and the composition on the green leaf is great.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

HA! finally an insect all by itself...is this one the wallflower...or the one who is 16 and never been kissed but with sun? and only on certain days...Great post Luciano. You are my hero!

Hi Luciano. Not to much chance of me seeing this on the south coast then. You were able to take this with fine detail and natural colours. Your POV lets us see the four wing dots . Stands out well from the bright green of the leaf. well done TFS.

Ciao Luciano,

Magnifica cattura verticale, molto "equilibrata" approccio si è rivelato buono, molto naturale dei colori. Buona struttura, mettendo in evidenza l'insieme.

Luciano Auguri a voi, che avete una buona Domenica.


bonjour Luciano
superbe photo de cette Moth et félicitations pour nous montrer pour la première fois cette espéce
belle présentation et superbes couleurs, les contrastes sont magnifiques
j'aime bien les deux points jaunes sur les ailes brunes
Passe un bon dimanche

Hi Luciano,
thanks for the comment. I do agree with you. sometimes i wonder about my personal taste, too dramatic in colours. Need to adjust,
Thia one is a lovely textured composition in superbs natural colours. well emphasised in it clarity.

Bonjour Luciano,
D'abord un bon dimanche et une bonne chasse, si tu sors faire des photos! Tu nous présentes une belle image d'un papillon rarement montré et que je n'ai jamais eu le plaisir de voir. belles couleurs naturelles. Jolis ces deux yeux sur chaque aile. Tu vas certainement compléter ta note..

Ciao Luciano,
splendida macro di questa falena per la quale lo scoglio dell'ID sembra superato, quante difficoltà e quante imprecisioni dovute anche semplicemente a diverse denominazioni, un mondo vasto e con un sacco di variabili quasi impercettibili, tornando all'immagine ottima qualità e composizione classica molto bella.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Great sharp photo Luciano
Well done

Ciao Luciano,

è molto fortunata ad avere (come me) amici su TN che identificano la tua cattura:)
E 'un grande successo (come al solito), chiaro, molto buona, con colori naturali!


Ciao carissimo.
Tecnicamente, come al solito, scatto eccellente. Dettagli macro ottimi.
Senza offesa, a me sembra la solita falena che vola intorno alle lampadine in estate....

Merhaba Luciano,çok çok sade,çok net,detayları çok güzel bir fotoğraf.Kanatlardaki simetrik çift noktalar çok ilginç,kelebeğin kendiside oldukça sade,ellerine sağlık :)

Ciao Luciano. Bella cattura per una perfetta - a me - sconociuta.


Hello Luciano,
I agree, this is really very strange kind moth which I am seeing for the first time.TFS

You post so regularly it becomes difficult for me to catch up with you, Luciano :). I'm sometimes busy elsewhere to give TN full time, and I feel bad about it.
This is a great image of a beautiful Moth I have seen for the first time.
You have captured it with great concentration and produced a master piece. The subject looks very attractive against the BG of a green and wide leaf.
TFS and regards.

hello luciano,
nice capture, the leaf makes a fine bg here, liked the pov and the composition too, the sharpness could have benn better,

Ciao Luciano
Joli spécimen sur sa feuille verte, merci pour cette découverte

nice unusual moth, TFS Ori

TFS and regards, Ulla
