close to Lyclene irregularis (Rothschild, 1913) [placed in the genus Asura on M.Savela's website . . ]. The only difference is in the post-medial fascia, which in the Cambodian specimen has a "V" shaped loop that almost meets the discal mark, whereas in irregularis the same loop has a small inversion at the discal mark point, such that the "V" looks more like an "M" Specimens of irregularis, for comparison, are on BOLD at

@juhakinnunen It is close to irregularis, but its genitalia are necessary. This group needs a revision.
