The Box Tree Moth (Cydalima perspectalis) is a species of moth of the family Crambidae. It is native to eastern Asia (Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Russian Far East and India).It is an introduced species in Europe, first recorded from Germany in 2006, and subsequently from Switzerland and the Netherlands in 2007; from France, Great Britain and Austria in 2009. In 2011, the Box Tree Moth has been first recorded from Hungary, Romania and Turkey. It is also known from Slovakia, Belgium and Croatia. During the preparation to the 2014 Olympics in 2012 it was introduced from Italy to Sochi with the planting stock of Buxus sempervirens and in the next year it began to defoliate Buxus colchica in large quantities. In 2013 it was found new to Denmark at several sites in the island of Sjślland (Wikipedia)

Hello Siggi,
Beautiful Moth. Very nice color and details. You managed very nice light too. Very good work.
Thanks for sharing,

Truly remarkable macro of this pretty Moth, Siegfried.
The image is pin sharp and the top perspective captures plenty of details on the wings.
I also like the long antennae of this species.
