Looks like a B52 Bomber Moth!

From appearance and other info on size, it's likely to be a female Abantiades atripalpis. I understand we have the specimen to confirm this.

Any chance this could be Endoxyla encalypti? Looks a bit like this one ...

It's so worn that it would be easy to make a mistake, I originally thought I'd see the specimen later to check. Do you think the antennae are pectinated (atripalpis, even females) or linear (Endoxyla females)? It isn't the usual time of year for Endoxyla enclypti.

mmm ... if the antennae are pectinate, the rami must be quite short. So I'd say linear.

We'd better call it unidentified then
