White Plume Moth by Vera Böhm

This butterfly is a moth of the family Pterophoroidea and it is found in Europe.
The wingspan is 24-35 mm. The moths fly from June to August.
The translation of the title would be in German "Federgeist"!
The German name "Schlehen-Federgeistchen"
actually says that regarding the food sector
that sloes are playing an important part of this sort of moth,
but this is refuted in the meantime.

Das "Schlehen-Federgeistchen" ist eine Art aus der Familie der Federmotten (Pterophoridae),welche in fast ganz Europa vorkommt.
Die Flügelspannweite beträgt 24-35 mm. Die Flugzeit ist von Juni bis August.

Der deutsche Name


sagt eigentlich aus,

dass Schlehen bezüglich der Nahrungsaufnahme dieser Mottenart eine wichtige Rolle spielen, was aber inzwischen widerlegt wurde.

Einwandfrei, nix zu meckern an der Aufnahme. Den habe ich hier noch nicht aufgetrieben, obwohl ich mich fotografisch gerne im Gestrüpp rumtreibe.
Liebe Grüße, Jürgen

Insects are strange, at times surreal, such as this feathered creature of a white and immaculate beauty that still gives me the shivers.
A pro for this macro.
