yes, subtle but true...
It is different in the sense that the two dark bands on the wings are not there.

Do you perhaps have a link that I can add, struggling to find one.
Thanks for the discussion everyone, I have looked at all the pics and links and I will make the ID Noctuid Moth, don't know much about moths, but Im glad you could have fun with the images. Johan, Ill start working on getting the right angles on the spots!
Thanks Dominic. I'm happy to go with your ID since I'm continuously battling with the ID of these critters.
Thanks for the compliment, Johan. I think you might be correct with Leucania, but it can't be Dorsalis, since this is aneotropical one. In Africa there are 113 species of Leucania. And almost no information about it. One of the most common ones is Leucania loreyi, but I don't think it is this one either.
I don't think this is it. Perhaps a type of army worm..
We'll have to ask Dominic to confirm since he is the moth expert.
