Western Asia, or Southwest Asia, are terms that describe the westernmost portion of Asia. The terms are partly coterminous with the Middle East, which describes a geographical position in relation to Western Europe rather than its location within Asia. Due to this perceived Eurocentrism, international organizations such as the United Nations, have replaced Middle East and Near East with Western Asia. This region and Europe are collectively referred to as Western Eurasia.
Dichagyris melanura is a moth of the Noctuidae family. It is found from south-eastern Europe to Turkey, the Caucasus region, north Iran, Israel, Syria and Jordan.
