I once commented that I do not trust any Amata ID on the web anymore. In this case and after a lot of discussions I am sure this one is Amata cyssea. The link is most probably IDed or at least "guided" by Peter Smetacek, a wellknown Indian moth expert. The link below is a good example how an ID might be "developped"... Please, read the whole comments!!
