Although there are only about 35 species there, being in the middle of the Indian Ocean, they are split between African and Asian species. I had seen what I thought were large moths flying in the evening, but one night found a Common Evening Brown roosting outside our hotel room. The subspecies there is helena, I believe that there are also wet and dry season forms, which differ by the size of the eye spots. My picture was taken with a flash, so looks a lot lighter than yours.
