Arctiidae, Pericopinae, Dysschema sp. for sure. Not it's getting tricky. Yours looks similar to Dysschema paracelsus, but it would not be serious to call this one Paracelsus from only a single shot:
There are at least 20 other Dysschema sp. which look similar to yours in Costa Rica.

Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Lat: 10.30, Long: -84.80
