    It was also much larger than the average Halpe!

    You are quite right, it is Pithauria straminiepennis.
    Because it was thougt to resembles Onryza, I was thinking small.

    Here are the two for comparison. Note the FW chequered cilia of H. burmana.

    Thank you Anthony. The Windmill is really massive. And I miss the other one, the "common" Windmill, actually not so common.

    Federick. The day I got the Paris and the upperside of the Royal was the end of October. I was alone there.

    CD27 ID Correction.
    Udara rona catius.

    Monodontides can be discounted because it has a spot near the base of space 1b (where twin spot are.)

    The 2 Udara species with lunulate submarginals & in which HW postdiscal spot 7 is not much larger nor darker than many of the others are U. dilecta & rona.

    U. dilecta tends to be whiter & the spots often reduced.

    Blues Left Udara rona. Right - Celestrina lavendularis. Note its legs are black with white bands.

    Prosotas pia marginata . Note submarginal spots are very diffuse & ill-defined.
