Large Branded Swift or Little Branded Swift?
I'm extremely sorry for the confusion caused but this is not Little Branded Swift (Pelopidas agna). Pelopidas agna has small 3 spots and pair of smaller white spots on the hindwing discal row in the underwing. (https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/15...) This one doesn't have the pair of smaller white spots.Then the two possibilities left would be Pelopidas mathias (Small Branded) or Pelopidas subochracea (Large Branded). Considering the size of white spots on the hindwing discal row, this one should be Pelopidas subochracea (Large Branded Swift) as you first suspected. Pelopidas mathias got much smaller spots.
