Thanks, Lehana. As far as I found it in the night I was thinking was a moth. Sorry : I must have seen that the antenna are cleary saying that is a butterfly.

Hi Juan! This is a very good specimen of Large Snow Flat butterfly. This species of butterfly looks and behaves like moths, found mostly under leaves. Would appreciate it if you move it to the butterfly mission. Thank you! Best regards...
