    Thank you.

    Could this be a Pelodias assamensis? It is very large.

    It is a male P. conjunctus. Note FW spots are yellowish; HW spots whitish; overall medium brown colour; antennae without prominent white patches.
    Also P. assamensis is larger still. FW 25-27mm.
    P. conjunctus FW 21-24mm.

    The spots on P. assamensis are very white ,the FW spots are large.
