Thanks, Josef! I know that Nuwan is an expert, I would trust him if there wouldn't be my eyes looking at these spots...

Nuwan, I also thought of Asota cariae, but the spots looked too small for me and less strong venation.

What do you think?

Erebidae, Aganainae, Asota sp.
Same one like this, unfortunately without an ID beside the genus from Roger Kendrick. It is most probably not Asota producta.
