Czechoslovakia. Blue Underwing Moth. Catocala is a generally Holarctic genus of owlet moths (family Noctuidae or superfamily Noctuoidea) commonly known as underwing moths or simply underwings. The genus name Catocala roughly means "beautiful hindwings". It is a combination of two Ancient Greek words, kato (κάτω, "the rear one" or "the lower one"), and kalos (καλός, "beautiful")

Another absolutely stunning Czech stamp this time by Max Švabinský and engraved by Jindra Schmidt. Love those subtle colours and that expert crosshatching. Like an Edward Gorey short story set in medieval Central Europe.

1960
