    Default Rapala dieneces/suffusa

    I believe this is R. dieneces from the slightly scalloped post-discal band(more or less straight in suffusa).
    R. damona is probably very unlikely.

    Agreed it should be R. dieneces.
    The three species are very similar on the underside & easily confused.
    eg The extent of the HW orange area indicates this one below is R dieneces.

    Two old shots taken from a distance. This should be a female R. dieneces right?

    It should be R. dieneces.
    Rather worn.
    There is no suggestion it could be something else.
