At outdoor light. I consider this moth to be Apoda rectilinea and would appreciate confirmation.

Apoda Slug Moth
Moved from Moths.

I'm thinking ...
Apoda rectilinea does not have the prominent, dark patch in the median area, near the inner margin. Curiously, your patch seems closer to the anal angle than other A. biguttata. Wish I had a definitive answer. I'm just not 100% sure about this one.

Thank you, Robert, "Apoda" of course is a safe bet. I suppose you stick with this image being biguttata, right?
P.S. Don't interpret my remark as not sharing your concern about the biguttata-type patch near inner margin!
