    To me looks more Elymnias nesaea lioneli than Elymnias saueri (no more casiphone), but to be certain would be better control the upperside.


    Here the 3 ssp of nesaea from Thailand:



    The Tiger Palmfly - Elymnias nesaea



    and an image of Elymnias saueri from Raub:

    Thanks Antonio. The hindwing submarginal streak and orangey colour had me confused.

    The upperside - I saw the streaks of blue on the upper forewing much like E. nasaea. In CP4 they are similar but with some differences. Unfortunately, no upper wing shot as it was too active
