Thank you bayucca. I will edit as Amaxia sp. I found it in the highlands of North Peru and I see kennedyi was found in coastal Brazil. I freely admit to knowing next to nothing about moths although I have always admired them. Thank you so much for your help.

Erebidae, Arctiinae, Arctiini, Amaxia sp., close to Amaxia kennedyi?
