While Edosa (genus eg. E. xystidophera, E. fraudulens) has been suggested, those species show a dark or black coloured v -shaped thorax, This moth clearly has a yellow coloured thorax. Tachystola (genus) show a yellow thorax, but I haven't found a sattisfactory match in that genus. There is also a distinctly jagged edge between the yellow coloured mid forewing and the outer forewing darker area.
