You may find your ID if you click HERE. Or go to your search engine and type lep.it and search. You should find them there.
IT IS A LONG AND PAINFUL PROCESS.
Good luck. Here is ANOTHER GUIDE.
Best and most kind regards,

"It is a long and painful process" - or not, if you ask the right person :)
Your extraordinary little creature is a Geranium Plume Moth Sphenarches anisodactylus, a species with a very large range. With such small insects, and at short working distances, f/5 is too wide an aperture and gives negligible depth of field - which is a problem with this image. the options are: crank up the ISO, or use a tripod, or use flash - and use a smaller aperture. I would probably be aiming for about f/16 for this subject, and would typically use a balanced flash exposure.
