Eudesmia arida (Skinner, 1906).

The forewings are dark gray to blackish with a broad transverse yellow band in the median area and a narrow yellow band in the subterminal area. The hindwings are blackish distally and yellow basally. Adults have been recorded on wing from June to October. The larve feed on lichens. Family Erebidae Subfamily Arctiinae

I found him under the very shadow of huge leafy trees, the color is too flashy and colorful, it settles below the leaves into small shrubs and bushes.
