I have been shown a museum sample labelled Eulepidotis ouocco that seems to me to fit. Also now a live photo.

Thanks Danielle.
I really have no idea how I missed this comment earlier.
I will look up the link.
It is bad that you spot the duplication and I do not.

I believe it's indentical to the one referenced in my suggestion. Genus Eulepidotis but species not identified.
Close to, but different from Eulepidotis perlata.
