Antenna and thorax

The thorax has orange and black diamond markings and the flagellum is clearly segmented.

Sorry I forgot to mention in

Sorry I forgot to mention in my last comment that this would indicate that it is an Athalia and not an Arge

Despite the 3:1 vote in

Despite the 3:1 vote in favour of Arge, this is quite clearly NOT Argidae. The antenna in this family is three-segmented, and this one obviously has more than this.

I am not competent to say whether it is indeed Athalia rosae, but there is no justification at all for calling it Arge sp.
