Thanks Bayucca! The Facebook group on which I got the ID is Artrópodos de Costa Rica. I do think we have a match with your Sarota acantus!

Skrota Vegas is probably or not found in Costa Rica and the markings are different indeed.

Thanks Jellis. On Facebook I got the exact same suggestion with the same site. I do think that it looks alot like Sarota gyas but the Marks on its wings are a bit different. Are you positive this is a gyas?
