    Cyclosia inclusus female Zygaenidae.

    This is also present in the other thread & there was doubt because of its broad black border.
    Its shape indicates a perspective distortion with the focus nearer the rear.

    The colour & metallic blue shading of the head, antennae & FW costa all matched.
    Part of the broadness of the black is because the inner margins of both FWs are folded in when they come together.
    Normally there are 2 diffuse spots in the black border, but the high contrast has rendered them invisible.
