After double check other shot, I found that the marginal spots is very regular, so it should be Ceylon Blue Glassy Tiger

Thx, I also think it should be dark blue tiger, let me check another shot to confirm it.

looks like the dark blue tiger has a larger area of darker regions on its wings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:VB_057...) than blue glassy tiger's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_G...), but I am not too sure either. which looks more like the one you saw?

I cannot ID it as Blue Glassy Tiger or Dark Blue Tiger?
Any major difference in between them?
