New Moth or Old Moth?

Here are a few photos of a moth from Happy Bay that is similar to one I found in La Savane, but has significantly different wing coloration. Perhaps the species is highly variable, either between different areas or different sexes, or perhaps it’s a closely-related species. Since this particular specimen was quite flighty, I tried taking a few mid-flight photos. These aren’t great quality photos, but it actually turned out to be a good way to see parts of the wing that aren’t visible when it is resting.
