Can N. zygotaria be ruled out?
Boy, this looks to me like a classic N. zygotaria with the narrow AM and PM lines on the FW fading out just below the costa, and with the HW PM line situated closer to the middle of the HW than on elfa. The faint green discal dots are also consistent with zygotaria. This would be towards the east edge of the range of zygotaria recited by Ferguson in the MONA fascicle, but perhaps not out of the realm of possibilities.
