    The HW white marks do not correspond to any species & are likely an aberration.

    The unspotted wings & large palpi(labial palps) suggest two species.

    1. Male of Quedara monteithi is generally darker brown.

    2. Hyarotis iadera is a better match, being deep brown.

    TL Seow: Cheers.

    PS It should be Quedara monteithi. The underside HW is uniformly darker.
    In Hyarotis iadera the HW underside have some obscure darker blotches.
