Thysanoplusia orichalcea which has pointed golden band at base of FW (blunt and rounded in intermixta).

Diagnosis (Vide MOB). The pale lustrous green areas of the forewings are distinctive except for possible confusion with a congener, intermixta Warren (below), which occurs sympatrically with orichalcea throughout the Oriental tropics to Java but has not yet been recorded from Borneo. T. intermixta has a forewing green area of somewhat yellower tone, crossed by a more distinct irregular submarginal; the green area extends slightly less basad and is basally more blunt; the hindwings are paler, more yellowish.
