Hi folks, Fresh photo few mins ago. I found this moth flying around the house which I managed to photograph. Interesting brown structure at the thorax

Mediteranian moths are not my speciality

BUT I can inform you, that the "interesting" brown look at the thorax is due to the fact that it has bumped into many things so that it has worn off all the hairs on the thorax, so in fact it is now bald.
