Interesting that the head is in focus, but the margins are not. Was the photo taken obliquely, so that the moth appears foreshortened ?

Catamola funerea ?

There bulging costa suggests Mimaglossa or Araeopaschia, but there may be others with that characteristic.

I was thinking the apparent bulge may be due to foreshortening. There are no black Araeopaschia or Mimaglossa on BOLD.

It may be perching high on its front legs, hence the foreshortening., therefore Catamola funerea looks likely to me - especially the way the antennea are held.
