    Probably a related species. But definitely not our local Quaker subspecies. Interesting hairy legs!

    Awesome shot of this pristine Nawab. Definitely not a species found in West Malaysia!

    Uncle LC,
    SG's Quaker has only one spot on the hindwing costa. The "Quaker" that you shot has many more spots.

    Polyura cognata (Vollenhoven, 1861). Common name: Sulawesi Blue Nawab. There are three subspecies recorded from Sulawesi, cognata, bellona and yumikoe (Vane-Wright & R. de Jong, 2003;Tsukada, 1991; D'Abrera, 1985).
