I am glad, too! Yes I noticed it is the same genus, so you were close enough. Thank you both ForestDragon and Manval for the ID help!

I am so glad you were able to get the ID of this moth. It is in the same genus as the moth it resembles here in the US. That would explain why they look so similar.

Thanks ForestDragon for your help, I'll take a look at the links and try to look up Crambidae family in Slovakia. I had a quick look, but nothing matches. It's hard to get an exact ID as it might look similar to more species. @Ashish, the size of this is approx 1.5-2cm. So I guess it's a "normal" moth.

It should called Micro Moth if smaller like Cumin seed.

It is very interesting that this moth looks very similar to the Lucerne Moth - Nomophila nearctica, found here in North America:

Yours has a bit more fringe on the edge of the wings than mine but there are some examples that do have the fringe.

Perhaps in the same Genus, or maybe they are found in your area as well. I don't know but you can back track from this. I am sure this is a Crambid Snout Moth (Family Crambidae).

I hope this helps!
