    Chrysodeixis eriosoma.

    Three species are widespread in the Indo-Australian tropics.
    All three have a coppery area (hard to see) posterior (below) the maculations (white spots).
    There is a more pronounced dark spot in the centre of the marginal fringe (FW cilia).

    C. eriosoma. The FW apex is mostly dark .

    C. acuta. FW apex is bisected by a paler fascia.

    C. illuminata. More golden colour; FW apex marked by a curved fascia ;a diffuse spot at mid FW margin adjacent to the fringe (cilia) spot.
