Thanks so much bayucca and Manval for suggestions. I found a near perfect visual match on Thallarcha partita. Eutane trimochla has a few too many anomalies including a yellow spot just behind the head.

I would slightly tend to Eutane trimochla:

Arctiidae, Eutane sp., can't tell you for sure which one it is, there are several ones around. Eutane terminalis and Eutane trimochla are the most common ones.
