Thanks bayucca, I have made the corrections. I found a reference. (Pachynoa near hypsalis; it says) I left it as Pachynoa species.

Crambidae, Spilomelinae, most probably Pachynoa sp., might be Pachynoa hypsalis?? No reference found though..., definitely not a Geometridae, pose and antennae looks different.
