Erebidae, Arctiinae, Phaegopterini, Pachydota sp., very similar to Pachydota nervosa, the most common one, but not "identical" and I did not find a record from Costa Rica or Central America. But it nevertheless might be Pachydota nervosa, the ressemblance is really astonishing (besides the little details...).
