Thank you very much Jakubko! I will keep an eye on them, I will edit the spotting to Opisthoxia miletia for now, again, thank you. Yes I agree with you this kind of places are the best! You see no civilization around whatsoever, just spectacular and beautiful nature! :D

Looks much like this variation of Opisthoxia:

Opisthoxia miletiaAH01Ec:

However, this is likely to become a new species. You may want to keep watch on this genus in the future.

I love this in your notes: "Yeah in this place you can spot a lot of weird and amazing moths all over the place, you just to walk like one meter away from the house, and there you have it."

Sounds like my kind of place! :-)
