    Is it a male Chilasa (Papilio) paradoxa? Supposedly, shots of the same specimen makes it a bit confusing to me! Taken by a forum member, Mr sugianto, from Indonesia

    They are both true Euploea species.

    Papilio is easily recognised by its upturn antennal club.

    1. E. radamanthus is always identifiable.

    2. It is impossible to know what this is as each species is widely variable in different islands.
    They are also many different species in Indonesia unknown here.

    TL Seow; Cheers.
