I have put up one Pyrausta ispot query already, but I thought that this moth may be a different species. It is smaller, with duller markings, and lacks the yellow fringe/line along the base of the wings that the other Pyrausta possessed. Additionally, this Pyrausta seems to have black markings edging the yellow markings on the forewing, which the other Pyrausta seemed not to possess.
