I unfortunately can not return it to uncertain ones: I've got no such possibility.
Be careful with the definition of such specimen, guys :)

It's 100% NOT Pandesma robusta (Walker, 1858) :)

It is the same moth as the one on photo #9906, so I moved it to confidently identified

Not identified → Pandesma robusta / Confidently identified / Sergey Kotov.

It seems very much like Pandesma robusta (Walker, 1858) (Erebidae: Catocalinae).

No, doesn't seem like such. As for size, forewing length about 1.5 cm or less.

This angle is surely bad :( Deep cave residential can mean Mormo maura. But looking at this photo, I can guess this one is not so big.

The wings are a bit clearlier seen than at Mainly, it's hard to identify this one judging by these angles, but I'm very curious since it was shot inside a deep cave. Can be something exotic...
