    It's tricky to say from this image alone I am afraid, but it is not one of the Plume moths. It is a male moth; hence the feathery antennae that help it locate females of the species by their pheromones. It is probably one of the geometrid species and we may be able to narrow it a little if you could tell us where and when you photographed this.

    No - not a plume moth.

    It is Apochima flabellaria, Mediterranean Brindled Beauty.

    (There are four species of Apochima but only that one occurs in Greece.)


    You'll find plenty of photos in Google.
