I know both these species and would choose Hydraecia micacea without doubt as a European Hydraecia petasitis is quite a different moth, subspecies in Far East is quite entangling:) Anyway petasitis is way bigger. Will think further.

Alexandr, I think it is ( http://catocala.narod.ru/noc231.html ) And way fresher than mine. A bit confusing that there is a similar micacea in this region which I know poor, didn't meet in nature (it's out in Primorye), should check this as well.
