Rather old post... anyone with ideas meanwhile?

Anthrax trifasciatus has an additional dark spot on the wing (acc. to the pictures in the gallery at least), so I don't think it's that one.

If no species can be determined, can I be sure at least it's Anthrax?
Best greetings

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
