    Female Potanthus ganda.The veins are just barely dark-dusted.
    The female of P. juno looks similar but there are only two subapical spots & the HW dark shading is lighter.

    TL Seow: CHeers.

    It is a Telicota . Although it appears quite orange it should be T besta male.

    In T augias the veins are not darkened even when worn.
