Hi Hugh, thanks for your suggestion. Whilst I agree that Phaiogramma etruscaria does look like this the size listed for that species is 16-21 mm wingspan. All those I have been able to measure have been 23-28 mm wingspan so considerably larger. Are you aware of any source of information which suggests that these can in fact be much larger than the quoted data which I get from this page http://www.lepidoptera.eu/show.php?ID=64...
