Pingasa  cinerea  GEOMETRINAE GEOMETRIDAE



  Pingasa cinerea GEOMETRINAE GEOMETRIDAE
This moth has an unusual rest position. As you can see, in the photo above it is able to unlock it's wings and put them forward in front of it's head. It will also rest at times, with the wings more open (below) and is also capable of resting with the wings out flat like most Geometrid moths. If they land near lichen, they can be quite hard to spot.
