Comment:   Can only be ocra from so far north. Easy to distinguish from Dingana angusta by the smaller size, lack of large submarginal UHW spots and small submarginal FW series. Sadly the splitters are out in force wanting to name it already but as far as I am concerned it looks just like the ocra in my collection (the app photo wasn't by me, and it's a female -this looks like a male). There is far too much splitting going on at the moment on shaky evidence.
