Please can someone identify this moth for me. Not a good photo but it was taken long ago at Berg en Dal camp. One mite has suggested that it is a Lunar Moth but on looking it up on Google it is only found in North America. It looks very much like it as well.

I think it may very well be a lunar moth, they do occur in SA. Argmena mimosae
