Sharp-angled Peacock (Macaria alternata)

The Sharp-angled Peacock needs separating from the Peacock. Several of the methods described are unreliable, or difficult in worn specimens. In the Sharp-angled Peacock the sub-terminal band is more distinctive and is clearly visible from below, in the Peacock this band is more subdued and not prominent from below.
