Oh guess its not that big. My book is only for North america and I cant find any thing at google. Best bet is find a book on your area lepodoptera.
I love butterflies and moths. :)

Here is one from My Garden this summer:

The "Golden Edge Moth" is very very beautiful. I don't know the scientific name but I'm asking for it.

Thanx!
