Sorry for the lighting, but this time I was caught totally off guard. This small moth (about 1 cm) came into my house at night. I photographed her almost without leaving the comfort of my couch! Usually happen to me... :)

Thanks for the tip, Chamalka! In fact it is almost perfectly identical, but the geography does not match. I don't know, but I suspect they are different species...

Smaller Parasa Moth.
But it is found in North America!

I agree with Limacodidae and Parasa sp., but not Parasa chloris, this is not found in Brazil.

Smaller Parasa Moth, slug caterpillar moth.
