Geometridae, Ennominae, Sericoptera sp. and most probably Sericoptera mahometaria. I added a cf. since a) there are many similar Sericoptera sp. around and b) nobody could tell me until now a safe key to ID Sericoptera. On the other hand Sericoptera mahometaria is very common in Central- and South America. But I suggest that we take Sericoptera cf. mahometaria as scientific ID to be on the safer side.
