I think a safer identification would be Calathusa sp.(genus). In fact I would suggest the fourth image looks like C. basicunea whereas the fifth image seems to match C. eremna (based on ALA images). C. hypotherma seems to have a straight line marking across the forewing whereas these have a corresponding waved line in the 4th and 5th images.
