Beautiful. Is there a name for the long scales at the trailing edge of some moths' wings? And are they a feature mostly found in moths vs butterflies? Thanks again for you wonderful photos.

[http://www.flickr.com/photos/benrauch] This is actually a Dipteran not a Lepidopteran - Mothflies are in the family Psychodidae. However it's still a good question, these have hairs/scales much like moths, hence the name I guess. (Also see some of my Mosquito shots for more flies with scales!). If I find out the answer to your question I will post it here!
