I searched a little the species you suggested and other species...they are the same, and it would be impossible to find it again and take DNA :) I think I should ID this moth as genus name..
Thank you a lot!

Erebidae, Arctiinae, Lithosiini, Eilema sp. sometimes also called Manuela sp.. Tricky one! I am not sure if it is possible to ID this one based upon this only picture and I don't know if it is possible to ID these without DNA. Maybe you find some more information. I would slightly tend to Eilema pseudcomplana, without exactly knowing why ;-)...
