I don't think the single forewing spot is large enough for T. stereo/spila with its whitish centre.

Yes, but what else has the dark markings at the hind-margin end of the post-medial forewing line? Taxeotis didymosticha ?

MoV says T. didymosticha can be distinguished by its grey head and and the wide band on the edge of the termen between the fringe and the line of dashes. I don't think this moth shows the 'wide band' feature which can be checked against the photos of T; didymosticha on the MoV part 4 supporting disc.. Many T. intextata show the dark markings you mention to varying degrees, although strongly contrasted here with an otherwise pale appearance overall. I suggest a pale T. intextata. Otherwise Taxeotis sp. (genus).

OK: many of BOLD's T. intextata have the darkening near the hind-margin.
