Moved from Pyralid Moths.

Tentative ID. See my comment below. I am not sure how to rule out similar species in Aglossa specifically Aglossa electalis.

Edit - Maury ID'd another of yours here as A. electalis. I will comment on that image.

Moved from Pyralid Moths.

Did you intend to move this somewhere else?

Thanks for catching this. I'm a bad multi-tasker.

This appears to be the same species as Margarethe's image identified by Maury here.

Moved from Moths.

Moved from ID Request.

Acallis gripalis is likely.
Acallis gripalis is likely. Did you get a forewing length on these?

but I'd say a little more than 1 cm
