    I'm not convinced this is Eudocima phalonia, which doesn't have the pronounced pale streak at the apex of the forewing. This photo looks closer to Eudocima tyrannus. Did you manage to get a shot of the hindwing?

    cheers, Roger.

    I can see a streak of red, supposedly that is the hindwing?
    cheers
