Micro

Classed as a micro but it's quite large really.

Yes

Yes indeed it looked bigger than many pugs. Its rather confusing to a noob moth-er like me that moths this big (and bigger) can be classed as micros!

I'm sure taxonomists go out of their way to confuse people sometimes ;)

Conversely

Conversely some macros are really, really tiny.
