Yes, I see that also this way. As with all these Amata sp., I am not very confident with most of the Utetheisa IDs in the Australasian area if they are not coming from a trustable site/side. I would not dare to question Martins ID of Pulchelloides, but sianakdesa's is a Lotrix.

Fourth sight: I think it is Utetheisa lotrix. Check the same criteria I mentioned below in my last comment. What would you think, Nuwan??

Third sight, I don't think it is Pulchella. Look at the outer margin of the forewings. In my eyes in Pulchella there should be quite a very regular row of smaller red, black and white pins/spots. In this one there is not such a regular pattern:
