The Pointed Palmfly, Elymnias penanga penanga (Westwood)

At a glance, it is almost identical to the Common Palmfly and on close inspection, its much pointed and elongated forewing will differentiate it from E. hypermnestra. The edges of the wings are also much less crenulated (wavy) in E. penanga.
