I found this flying among my Adeniums last week I think it is a species of Pyrrhoyra possibly P. otolais, but it is very difficult to tell. Any better ideas ?

You're right in that it is a Pyrrhogyra, but I would say P.amphiro, not otolais. Yours has the red line all around the top edge of the VHW, while otolais has a white edge on the hind wing. Nice shot though, pretty specimen.
thanks,
