This has to be in Metarranthis but I can't seen to find the right combination of washes and spots. Any ideas? Thanks

6732 - Euchlaena deplanaria
I would have called this 6733 - Euchlaena amoenaria except for the position of the hindwing spots relative to the pm. line. I am assuming that this is a consistent character useful in separating the two species.

 
PM Line
Bob,
I notice all 6733 specimens have a straight HW pm line. The HW spot on this specimen is positioned in a very distinct notch as most other 6732 specimens I've found on the internet. With others' ID in accord, we can safely say your assumption is correct. Time for a new BG species guide page :) BTW would this be a male?
Bob
