Could be as I commented, however, we cannot be 100% sure. I previously and now did not find any reports from Colombia, Peru or Ecuador.

I think this one might really be Smicropus laeta, although I was a little bit sceptic before.

That's a very tricky one. There are quite a few yellow moths around all looking almost the same, but are not even from the same family. I think this one is a Geometridae, Sterrhinae, Smicropus sp. Although it looks quite similar and is found in Columbia I do not think it is Smicropus laeta:

Might even be a not yet described species, as are much moths and butterflies in Colombia as well.
