Dear Harm,
Thanks for posting this beauty!
This is Cyclophora lennigiaria (Fuchs, 1883), a west-mediterranean species only abundant in the Iberian-penninsula, France and a small patch at the western border of germany, following its foodplant, Acer monspessulanum.
Tha taxonomic rank of the species is still doubted. Is it common in your place? Are U also collecting, or only photographing?
