He, he :-)), thanks Bill! I am happy to see my suggestion and guess being the same. Therinia is now called Asthenidia, I think I should have know that 9 month ago as well. The ID of Bill is 100% safe, Emiliy!

It is not Geometraria and Stricturaria.

Micronia is a genus from South Asia. It is a Saturniidae, Therinia sp., closer is tricky, the moth is a little bit too bright to clearly see the markings. Might be Therinia lactucina due to the slightly falcated apex, but I am not sure. There are probably more species in Guyana.
