Eustala sp., anastera or cepina. Generally a dorsal is best if there’s only going to be one image, but eye arrangement, ventral, lateral and other details are helpful too depending on what it is. In the case of this one a full dorsal that shows the length and width of the abdomen would help (E. anastera, abdomen longer than wide) or a lateral that shows the shape of the abdomen (E. anastera, distinct dorsal hump, sometimes multiple humps).
