Tony, could you please remind us what the main feature(s) is (are) that distinguishes D pardina from semilunulata?

The main feature of D. semilunulata is the broadly rounded labellum side lobe. It is yellow orange in general appearance. D. pardina tends to be more heavily marked with dark red-brown, noticeably on the back of the petals. D. semilunulata flowers a bit later than D. pardina.
