    1. Or Opisthoxia molpadia?

      Examples seem to be from Costa Rica

      1. That one definitely also looks close. Check out this page:
        http://v3.boldsystems.org/index.php/Taxbrowser_Taxonpage?taxon=Opisthoxia&searchTax=

        ...scroll a bit down to the thumbnail gallery and you will find several species looking close to yours. So one thing I was specifically trying to match is the black/white stripe above the eye pattern in the wing. In your photo it is very clear, yet in many look-a-likes not there at all.

        That's how I came to Opisthoxia cluana, it's the only one that also has it, except for one other on the above site that has no species name, it's undescribed.

        Tricky one!
