Lunar Thorn - one of an autumn group

Lunar Thorn (Selenia lunularia)

I've only caught two Lunar Thorns, this one on August 2nd this year and one on August 6th 2004. It has two generation and like most thorns it is an Autumnal moth in the second. It has the distinct moon sign on each wing.

Several of the thorns hold the wings half open. There are a lot more of my moth pictures, arranged systematically here.
