Not a great photo but it's the only one that I was able to shot on this subject.
Seem to be Synanthedon culiciformis.

Thanks for the help.
I think you're probably correct - Synanthedon culiciformis.
S. stomoxiformis and S. myopaeformis are very similar, but I don't think they have the orange patch on the side of the thorax.

yes, they don't have the orange-red suffusion at the base of the forewings.
PS: have you seen the other 3 moths to confirm?
