I also thought about Pyrausta. I am not sure if Signatalis is going that much south to Costa Rica. Besides the lower line at the margin of the forewing is quite narrow and regular, the same line in Pyrausta signatalis is not so regular. I have it still on my list to check...

Pyraloidea and looks in my eyes like Crambidae, Pyraustinae.
