Eueretagrotis sigmoides Another moth that for a while I thought might be Xestia or Feltia. It is similar to Eueretagrotis perattentus but differs by the +/- rectangular black mark near the edge of the lower quarter of the forewing and broad costa with no marks for at least two-thirds of its length (there are usually some small black marks in Eueretagrotis perattentus).
