maybe Oligocentria
The posture, vague white blotches, wing shape and general look make me think this is Oligocentria semirufescens. I found another a couple nights earlier and its markings were more defined and easy to ID. Sorry I'm only getting around to these images now. Better late than never...

Needs an expert
It's a Schizura my limited knowledge tells me, but I looked at the MPG images out of curiosity but that didn't help with yours.
