Noctuid moth

Mythimna sp.

Description:

Many male moths have elaborate antennas to comb the evening air for molecules of pheromones emitted by potential mates. The intricate network of sensillum hairs filter these scent molecules from the air and allow the moth to find the object of his desire at a considerable distance.

Notes:

This is a beautiful moth, but I don't know it's exact name.
