    It should be correct as P. serina female.

    The disparity of FW spots 4 & 5 is distinctive.FW spot 8 is small here.
    On the underside FW spot 5 overlaps spot 6. & the band is continuous :On the upperside it may sometimes be detached.

    Potanthus juno can look very similar .FW spot 8 is absent but sometimes vestigial.
    THe underside is paler ;FW spot 5 is always detached from spot 6.

    Thanks Dr Seow. The shape of the spots seems variable
