Note: Vide Cui et al 2018, S. ornata is similar to S. hyriaria and S. elasmlatus (extralimital), sharing with them the yellowish or red-brown coloration and similar transverse bands. However, S. ornata has one areole in the forewing venation, but there are two in S. hyriaria and S. elasmlatus. However, my personal observation is that the areole as a feature is not reliable as these are not even visible as per description in the plates in Cut et al 2018.
