Geometrid Moth

Garaeus sp.

Habitat:

Mixed forests of pines, bamboo and cherry. Altitude: 1,700 m.

Notes:

Posted earlier but that was much bigger and had a pair of 'see-throughs' (translucent spaces) on the wings among the spaces where locket-like decorations are located, and also in one of the 'see-throughs' there was a H-mark, which even enlarged for more than 200% didn't blur. This specimen is a smaller and simpler one, with all other details being similar!
