It is the Lesser Dart Potanthus omaha.
All the veins are nicely darkened.

The Large Dart P. serina also have the veins darkened, but it is easily ID'ed by the forewing spot 4 & 5. The upper spot 5 is half that of the lower spot 4.
In the female the ratio is less (ie spot 5 is a bit bigger.)
Male Large Dart.
