The Misiones, Argentina image is of a much greener moth without the deep excavations just below the forewing tip, indicating an incomplete/damaged and sun exposed/"browned" specimen at the top of the page. There is a small, black, distinct, forewing cell spot in this species. The forewing outer margin, below the slightly excavated apex, is noticeably convex.
