    It's not obnubila. obnubila doesn't have such a marbled appearance and has whitened forewing apices and white spots on the hindwing(like a hypermnestra with tails).

    It's without a doubt Elymnias harterti, which is very rare.

    Quite right.

    Rushing thru Yutaka's small images was a poor choice to compare images quickly.

    Yes, Jonathn, I also love the E. dara most, but very lucky to find a E. harteri!
