A velvet triangle sent on September 08, 2019 (22:42) by Francesco Palumbo. 2 comments, 95 views. [retina]

con Nikon TC-20E III, 1/2 f/18.0, ISO 100, tripod.

Questo lepidottero è una falena, molto simile ad una farfalla ma non è una farfalla. Anche se appartengono allo stesso ordine hanno caratteristiche, abitudini e comportamenti differenti. Rappresentano il 95% dei lepidotteri e si riconoscono più di 170.000 tipi. Vivono di notte, al contrario delle farfalle che sono diurne. Sono attratti dalla luce e si cibano di tutto. Dai detriti tipo capelli, pelle, peli, lana i quali contengono principalmente cheratina, che predilige. Ma anche la corteccia, il legno, piante e nettare. Le tarme, piccole e bianche, che troviamo nell'armadio tra gli indumenti, sono falene. A differenza delle farfalle hanno una livrea poco appariscente, una peluria sul torace, sulle ali e sul capo. Alla presenza delle falene, sin dall'antichità, la superstizione popolare ha attribuito cattivi presagi, anche nefasti. La temutissima processionaria, sono larve di falena. In Europa la falena più grande è la Saturnia pyri con apertura alare di 15 cm. caratterizzata da due disegni sulle ali simili ad occhi.

The beautiful moth, is an Erebidae of the genus Dysgonia, in Italy there are two virtually identical species (algira and torrid) not determined with certainty by one or more photos, but only by microscopic analysis of the genital apparatus.
