    Its a Dacalana burmana female. The postdiscal black markings are lunulate(crescentic) & the orange patch is very small.

    No, not rare. It can, however, be considered uncommon. I usually see a few specimens each year on Samui. It is getting close to the southernmost part of its range on Langkawi, so it may be rarer there, but remember, 'rarity' is a very subjective term.

    I see. Maybe it's the other spp that are "actually" rare.
