The absence of an apiculus on the antennae narrows down the genus to Taractrocera. So you could scan C&P4 for the various species in this genus. There are not many that are brown with yellow spots. :)

Further hint, a couple of photos of this species have been shown at BC within the last month or two.:)

Thanks Khew for the clue.
Looks like a Taractrocera ardonia lamia
