Species level. Pay attention to the shape of its hindwings (oculea has much more "round"), also that one is itself more round :) And its "eye" spot........ As for this one, no sense to examine genitalia as it's female. Tomorrow if the weather's good I'll have a night out there to collect some more "oculea" (supposedly) :)

Distinctions are clearly seen. Species or intraspecies level ??? Genitalia examination needed for dozens of different groups, then can be some conclusions made :))

Here is it with clear distinctions in habitus from http://lepidoptera.pro/gallery/33014. Didn't collect other species. There are also Amphipoea lucens in Moscow region and Amphipoea crinanensis (questionable) :)
