    5. Maliattha signifera. Eustrotiinae, Noctuidae. Indoaustralian tropics.

    This is often confused with another species M. ritsemai which has the brown band straight & the margin less undulate.

    12 Theretra suffusa.
    Note on the FW the dark band is after the pale band.

    In the other two with a similar mid -body stripe ie T. oldenlandia & silhetenssisthe dark band is before the pale band.
