Moved - to Genus level for expert review
Moved from The Joker.

The species placement is far outside of the known range and this image should be reviewed by an expert. The species in this genus are very similar and this may have been placed incorrectly. I'm not sure.

Feralia sp.
Feralia major and Feralia deceptiva both have a similar black 'L-shape' bordering white patch in the basal area. While I'm thinking a Major Sallow, I wouldn't commit from just a side view. See comparison of similar species
