Owlet Moth Atlantic Rainforest

Owlet Moth Atlantic Rainforest

I am guessing here, but this fellow looks like it is in the family Noctuidae.There are 35,000 known species out of 100,000 or more owlet moths. There are no "Owl Eyes" on it's wings but from what I can find many of the Owlet Moths don't have the eyes. At my local butterfly house I saw enormous Owl Butterflies with the distinctive white eye and black ring.
