[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Moth is an insect closely related to the butterfly. Both are of the order Lepidoptera. The division of Lepidopterans into moths and butterflies is a popular taxonomy, not a scientific one. Sometimes the names "Rhopalocera" (butterflies) and "Heterocera" (moths) are used to formalize the popular distinction. The reality is that butterflies are a small group that arose from within the "moths," and there is thus no way to group all of the remaining taxa in a monophyletic group, as it will always exclude that one descendant lineage.

Helló Rimas!
Nem láttam még hasonló lepkét. A virág méretéhez hasonlítva, elég apró lepke lehet, de nagyon szép!
Kicsit zajos a kép, de a szerkesztése tökéletes. Köszönöm, hogy megmutattad.
Üdvözlettel, Robert

hi, beautyful picture, tfs
