Noctuidae
This species of Caradrina appears close to C. montana but this species has not been recorded in the Maltese Islands. The closest member is C. proxima but the white spots near the reniform dots are absent in this species. It is temporarily placed in this taxon.

I would like to thank Paolo Mazzei for correcting this misidentification and for his comments on the taxon.
