    Yes, it is N. jumbah.
    N. jumbah have most of the forewing submarginal spots small triangula, or 'V'.
    The hindwing submarginal spots are much flattened. out often lunulate (1/4-1/2 moons)

    Two very similar species have the hindwing submarginal spots large & quadrate in shape.
    P. columella is very similar on the forewing, with large gap between spot 2 & 3, & triangular cellend spot.

    Neptis hylas have the forewing triangular cellend spot more sharply pointed & the gap between spot 3 & 3 less.
