Thank you Bayucca, now I see the difference between the wings shape. The shape of wings in Epimesis species are exactly alike to this moth.

No, it is unfortunately not that one. Wing shape is different. I am still tending to Epimecis sp. but did not find any reasonable match until now.

Hi Bayucca--
Could it be this moth of the Brachyctenistis genus? Some tips of the description match with this one. However according to the link this genus is limited to Colombia, Peru and Ecuador. Thank you for your time!

Thanks a lot @ bayucca fot the help!

Geometridae, probably Ennominae. Remembers me of an Epimecis sp. Epimecis hortaria is the only species in US and there are some other species in South America. Unfortunately I have no reasonable resources to check. Maybe it helps...
