Olene mendosa is variable in the patterns that it displays. The one that you fund is also the same species, just a different color pattern.

Hi, Thanks for the comment. Just 1 clarification. Wikipedia link https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olene_me... shows species with different patterns but flickr link, pattern matches. Does o.mendosa have variable patterns?
