Congratulations Kostas, this jewel of a moth is our Spotting of the Day!

"This distinctive and beautiful Arched Marble (Lethreutes arcuella) is our Spotting of the Day! Rather striking with its orange ground color and metallic blue-grey streaks, this small moth in the family Tortricidae is found over most of Europe in woodland and heaths. Tortricidae is a rather large family with over 10,350 species described. These moths typically rest with their wings folded back, giving them a rounded profile".
