Geometrid Moth, we believe

Owlet Moth, we believe

Hi Kristian,
We believe this is a member of the family Geometridae, the Measuring Worm Moths.  Alas, we haven’t the time right now to delve any deeper into its classification.

Cesar provided a comment and a link to a Japanese moth that looks very similar that is either an Owlet Moth or a member of the family Erebidae

    Man, it looks like a Noctuid/Erebid to me, may be close to this ( I think this one is Japanese): http://content.teldap.tw/main/dc_detail.php?dc_id=1305466

    Looks for me like a ”Hypopyra malgassica” (male).
