I think this is Taxeotis stereospila because the large single wing spot has a pale centre., whereas in Nearcha usaria it is solid and usually fainter. In this specimen the wings spot is roughly equidistant between the two main wing markings as for Taxeoitis, whereas in Nearcha usuaria the wing spot is closer to the inner main wing marking. The other spots in the forewing better match Taxeotis (aligned in a curved line) whereas in Nearcha they are differently distributed.
