Oh, I see, famous guy...
I just ask for the shipping costs to Switzerland. From Costa Rica I have very unpleasent stories about 5 times the prices for the shipping than for the books...

Thanks for the help Doc. Yes I went past the Butterfly house version a couple of times but didn't see the match but of course once I had the name they popped up everywhere. Peter Marriott amazes me - he sees moths in ways we can only imagine. :-)

Here you would surely see the nice match:

Here not, that is also the reason why I did not find a match at my first search: http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au...
I had it on my screen, but had not the time to search for additional search for other. I agree with Testulata.

First sight Geometridae, Larentiinae, Pug Moth or whatever you call these ones in down-under... Easy one!? Not at all, I thought with this clear markings there must a match..., specially the reddish part not extanding to the margin. Maybe you have more luck and definitely better resources.

And not to forget, I might be completey wrong!
