    Default Parantica aglea or Ideopsis similis

    Hello everyone, please help me an ID of this specimen. I think it can be Parantica aglea or Ideopsis similis, but not sure yet.

    Thank you for your time,
    H

    Thanks Mr Seow for identification, but I still concern about using "blue" a key for identification. Is it affect by sunshine or position of photographer to butterfly? Do we have another key?

    Thanks,
    Hanh

    Colour in photos varies a alot so it is irrelevant whether it is blue or blue-grey.
    The shape & arrangement of the markings between Ideopsis & Parantica are different.
