Two difficult moths

Although I have tried many times to identify this moth, I have not managed to achieve a satisfactory result, but I think it belongs in NOCTUIDAE.

Probably the closest resemblance that I have found is Condica macrosema.
There is still the problem that none of the samples show the distinct pinkish band on the rear wings.
Condica macrosema CONDICINAE NOCTUIDAE
Was:- Condica macrosema AMPHIPYRINAE NOCTUIDAE

Another similar moth is Pseudeustrotia macrosema. There is still the lack of the rear wing band.
Pseudeustrotia macrosema PSEUDEUSTROTIINI NOCTUINAE NOCTUIDAE
Was:- Pseudeustrotia macrosema  NOCTUIDAE
I don't think there is going to be a definite answer to this one.





Family:- NOCTUIDAE
Sub Family:-
Genus:-

NOCTUIDAE Possibly CONDICINAE Condica Sp

And this moth is another moth I have not found a good match for.




Family:- NOCTUIDAE
Sub Family:- CONDICINAE (Possibly)
