  1. Beautiful capture!
    Although the species is not identified I added it to my list "Mimicry - a way to survive".
    It could be Celidophylla albimacula, but I am not sure 100%, as I couldn't find reliable sources.

    1. It's really hard to tell. This should be a reliable source but the specimens are very different. This is the only species in it's genus but there are similar species in other genera.
