I have compared the venation between the live specimen and the figure and agree that the genus is probably correct although a whole fore and hind wing profile would be more definitive. Good work.

Thanks Roger, it's certainly hard to get full wing venation shots from live specimens but I'll try, if the opportunity arises again.
