No ID

By crookymonsta
I found this butterfly on the edge of woodland in Slovenia but, as yet, have not been able to identify it. I used to have an excellent website bookmarked for this purpose but seem to have lost it somehow, so if anyone can recommend one I would be most grateful.

Thanks to Pamela (pamelajean) I now have the ID - Rheumaptera hastata, or Agent & Sable moth.

Isn't it pretty! It's similar to a Small Argent & Sable, but my book is UK and I see you caught this in Slovenia.

You've caught it brilliantly, the colours and details are fantastic!

A beautiful capture, strong markings.
I wonder if this is a moth, not a butterfly?
