    It looks really like a hippoclus, bt the markings near the apex of the forewing don't really correspond bt resemble lilaea. The underside resembles lilaea too. U may get lucky on this one, as well as feel disappointed if it were a lilaea.

    Oh no! Just realised that the bands on the hindwing don't match too.

    Hi Goh,
    Both Fleming and Pisuth have underside photo of both S. lilaea and S. hippoclus,
    you will have a lot of fun trying to compare the two
    Anyway, the two species are difficult to separate satisfactorily without dissection of the male genitalia.

    Nope, that's not a hippoclus. True hippoclus has more irregular spots on the forewing. The orange bar on the forewing of hippoclus also has a depression.This one does not, so it is most probably a lilaea.
