Thank you Jacob Gorneau for the information I find it very useful and I will try to participate and contribute with my pictures. Thank you both, Jacob and bayucca for ID-ing and sharing your knowledge with me. I really appreciate your efforts.
Thanks J for your support!
That could be it! Terrific find, nevertheless! Have you registered for National Moth Week yet? National Moth Week is a global citizen science event that celebrates the amazing biodiversity of moths. This year, National Moth Week is July 19 to July 27! Your country, Macedonia, is not on the map yet! Looking for moths near an outside light is all you need to do. You can register for a private or public event and find more information at www.nationalmothweek.org. It would be great if you are interested in participating. If you add a spotting to the “Moths of the World” mission of a moth found during National Moth Week, you will contribute to important citizen science data! The mission can be found here: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8841.... Feel free to contact me with any questions via comments here or in an email: email@example.com.
Looks like it. I guess it was small and not fully formed, maybe that's why it lacks coloration. But I'm not expert, I'm just guessing. Correct me if I'm wrong.
The orange can appear brown if backlit. Here are some other photos of the same species:http://www.arthropodafotos.de/pictures/4...http://www.diversitasnaturae.be/anania-h...
Here is my enlightened version of the picture: http://lh4.ggpht.com/lXMXdLiCVWvSkqytKeg...There are brownish parts, but not yellow.
Mence and bayucca, I brightened the photo as best I could without extremely exposing the photo and I think you can see some orange, especially by the thorax and head.
Hmm, I cannot imagine another species. Your picture is also quite dark, maybe the yellow parts are "hidden". Can you try to enlighten the picture a little bit? There are other Anania sp. around, but they are mostly brownish and with other markings.
Looks like Anania hortulata but doesn't have yellow coloration. Only black and white.
Crambidae, Pyraustinae, Spilomelini (or Crambidae, Spilomelinae), Anania hortulata.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anania_hort...http://bugguide.net/node/view/652787/bgi...
