Hello Maks,

I'm no expert, but I would say, this is Rhinophora lepida (Rhinophoridae).
Best regards,

I've got one question: I've had a look at some photos of Rh. lepida on the Internet, and the angle between veins m and r is different to the one on my friend's photos. Would this indicate a different species?

This is, indeed, Rhinophora lepida. I am not sure about your question, you would need to provide links to make me understand.
But wing venation can be aberrent in Calyptratae. I have seen missing veins, petiolated cells that should have been open etc. It is uncommon, but not extremely rare.
