Thanks for all your beautiful moths spottings this week Sergio! This one
is stunning! Please use the scientific name field only for the binomial name; other levels of taxonomy can go in your notes or be provided by a reference. Also, don't forget to fill in the habitat field (habitat in the ecological sense, as opposed to geographical location). This should describe the actual habitat where the spotting was made. Thank you again and it's nice to see you here!
