    It looks to be Parnara bada.
    There is a lower cellspot. The upper cellspot is dubious.
    P. bada may occasionally have a lower spot.

    Parnara species are very difficult.

    P. bada; very variable. UpF spot 3 quadrate (squarish) so that spots 2, 3, & 4 are equal distance apart.
    UnH spots yellowish, often small , irregularly placed, spot 6 may or may not be present.

    P. ganga. UpF spot 3 somewhat rectangular ,so that spot 3 is nearer spot 2 than spot 4 ;(FW need to be in the proper perspective).
    A lower cellspot may be present.
    UnH spots yellowish , more often large, spot 6 usually absent.
