Sorry Argybee, I gt no more info :(
The Spirama Retorta is a dull colored (black and gray) medium-sized nocturnal moth in family Noctuidae (Owlet moths family). It has a total wingspan of 60-70mm. The overwhelming majority of noctuids fly at night and are almost invariably strongly attracted to light. The Noctuidae or owlet moths are a family of robustly-built moths that includes more than 35,000 known species out of possibly 100,000 total, in more than 4,200 genera. They constitute the largest family in the Lepidoptera.
could be Spirama helicina or S.retorta
