This is the female of the species, common name is Great Eggfly. Teacher Marie, you may want to also check this site - We would love to have this spotting (and your other butterfly spotting) in our mission - (Butterflies in the Philippines). Pls join :)

This is a variable butterfly so you need to be very careful selecting an ID. My suggestion is tentative. I do love the blue reflection ob the wing tips.
