    Based on the reformulation of the boundary integral equations recently derived by Creagh, Hamdin, and Tanner [J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 46, 435203 (2013)1751-811310.1088/1751-8113/46/43/435203] together with semiclassical (short wavelength) approximation, we theoretically show that low-loss resonances of a fully chaotic dielectric billiard can be related with ray dynamical orbits whose intensities are weighted by the Fresnel reflection and transmission coefficients. In addition, it is revealed that intensity localization spots observed in the phase-space representation of an individual resonance wave function are ray-dynamically correlated.
