This suggestion is based on thinking a mid dorsal line is visible on the abdomen

I believe that this is another example of Chlorocoma sp (3) as described in MoV Part 4. Other examples of this have been named Chlorocoma sp. (genus) because Chlorocoma sp(3) is not yet recognised.

I'm happy to classify it as Chlorocoma sp. But we have to recognise that not all those reports are necessarily the MoV sp3, it is a catchall category for moths that are definitely Chlorocoma but we aren't sure of the species. A careful review of this category and C. dichloraria would probably lead to some corrections.
