    It is a female Nacaduba sanaya elioti
    The submarginal spots are unusually large here.

    Nacaduba sanaya.
    Dark sriae within the bands poorly developed or absent; FW postdiscal band dislocated near upper end at vein 6.
    HW submarginal band with rounded inner margins; HW black spot without any metallic blue scale.

    Also recorded in Singapore in the past.

    Dark striae within bands weak or absent (as in sanaya. );FW postdiscal band without dislocation.

    Very similar sometimes & easily confused.
