New one for me...

Sorry for the bad picture. Using a 'point and shoot' but I did collect this one and can get some better pictures tomorrow if needed.

Just found Arboridia in the guide...?

Interesting.
I agree that Arboridia is very close. But I can't find any examples in the Guide where the central stripes extend from the stout, across the thorax and onto the wings, as in your specimen. A new species for the Guide, perhaps? Or another genus we've both overlooked? In any case, I'll be interested in seeing what Dr. Hamilton has to say.

 
Finally got the chance to take pictures...
...with my other camera.
