I do not see any other specimens like this in the other 336 Arabella species illustrated in
http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/TaxBrowser_Taxonpage?taxid=4173,
and the 7 specimens there of P. arabella show wide variation in the colouring of the marginal area.
P. arabella is just a variable species.
I am unclear at the extra reticence to call it that,
given that all ID's of moths from photos are fraught.
Is the photo sufficient evidence to infer a 338th Philobota species?

Oops misprint: I meant 336 Philobota species.
