I am suggesting P, hypochalchis for two reasons:
1. The main forewing tick mark does not match the pattern which is typical of P. capualaris which does not wary much in the specimens I can see on the ALA. Whereas the tick mark does vary a lot in P. hypochalchis and I think the tick mark in this specimens falls within the wide range of that variation with some examples on the ALA being close to this specimen. 2. The shape of the wavy line near the tip of the forewing has a sharp kink in it near the apex which closely matches the shape typical of specimens of P. hypochalchis on the ALA , but is different in shape (i.e not sharply kinked) to that shape characteristic of P. capularis.
