Plume moths - Family Pterophoridae

Order Lepidoptera
Family Pterophoridae
This microlepidopteran (almost 2 cm) is known as plume moth because fo the fringed margins of the wings as seen in the marked area. It has long legs and the wings keep a T-shaped form when at rest, which might easily be confused with a mosquito.
