@@nagabhushanjyothi I am not sure species level ID is possible from this photo. I am pretty sure it is not sikkima, in which I believe the dark area of the forewing is more patterned. Based on Shintlmeister and Pinratana (2007) - "Moths of Thailand Vol 5" - I had this down to a choice of three species but could go no further: argentifera, benderi, duplius.
