Herminiidae

This family of moths have not been well studied. They are very similar to moths from the sub family of  Hypeninae in Noctuidae, so if trying to identify moths that look similar check both families.
The larvae that have been studied live on the dead and decaying leaves on forest floor.
Note the large labial palpi particularly on the first photos.
