Welcome, Dimitris and in this case a belated Welcome to Project Noah. Just google the latin name and you easily will find a common name...

Common name would be Crambid Moth. In South Africa it is called the White Pearl, but this is a local name. We should not repeat the scientific name in the common name field. If you do not find a common english name, we usually take the english name of the family like Crambid (from Crambidae) Moth or Noctuid Moth or Nymphalid Butterfly.
