Agree, these are two moths of the same genus. After petasitis won't be surprised if this is really Polia bombycina :)

Here's another similar

Sergey, the pattern looks quite similar, no specific dark areas along the outer band, quite rare though. Other polia don't fit, will wait more, will check and look for. Lots in Far East yet undiscovered :)

Imho doesn't look like one. Yet huge variability............
Regions should be checked. Now can do nothing with my cell phone, alas.....

Definitely not.
Consider Polia bombycina?
