Nice photos. It is interesting to see the Yamfly shot with the ants.

why cannot see photo?

It could be due to heavy network traffic or the image source/server was busy at that moment. The browser will not load the images after timeout :cheers:

Besides the dark marginal & submarginal bands J. malaccanus have three complete bands (post-basal, discal, & postdiscal) on the hindwing.

This is either celeno, pura or zebra. J. celeno may be ruled out because the white striae are fairly well-aligned.

This individual is unsual in that the submarginal striae on the forewing are strongly blue-tinged. This is not normally seen in J. pura and suggest the correct ID may be J. zebra. Unfortunately there are no pic for comparison.
