Hi Janet, I recently managed some good photos of Trapezites symmomus (Splendid Ochre) including above forewing and under hind wing views. I was able to make a definite determination to species. I have since re-examined your sighting and one of my own (from 2011) , both of which I had identified, from upper fore-wing only, as Trapezites iacchoides. (Silver studded Ochre). I now think they are both most likely Trapezites symmomus.

Thanks Max. It's a species I have only ever seen once. It is hard times now and it's difficult to hope for better things in the future.
