I photographed this species at 1,200 m, in nw Thailand last week. This was the only shot I was able to obtain, so it's most unlikely this can be identified to species. However, it looks like no other Rapala I have photographed in Thailand.

From reviewing my other Rapala images, available literature and images on the web, I think this can be narrowed down to one of three species: damona, dieneces or rectivitta. All are uncommon but possible in northern Thailand. Three things strike me as unusual in this image:

1. The very prominent golden rim/edge to the upper side of both wings.
2. The rather distinct sub-marginal band (quite "blocky") (images of rectivitta show this).
3. The very straight forewing discal band.

I would be interested in comments on species which might show these features.

With thanks.
