These specimens were found on a wall near a wet vertical surface with lots of moss on it. The spines on the CuA2 vein suggested it to be Pneumia mutua
(Eaton, 1893), which was confirmed through study of the very same specimens in the lab.
Bergen, Norway, may 2012.
A good field character for this species may be the big patch of white hairs on the frons.
