Could anyone help identify this moth found in the evening in a bungalow at Skukuza. I can't seem to find it in my Insect guide. Thanks.

It's a moth.... of the family Noctuidae... and its called Trigonodes hyppasia. Can't find a common name, so I hope you remember it :wink: !

Common name is the Semi-looper moth according to a few websites I found with Google. It is found in Africa, Asia and northern half of Australia.
