Beautiful butterfly danadowns! But I am afraid the suggested ID is wrong. This butterfly has no tail, and the suggested species is found in North and Central America only. I'll try to find another ID for you, but it would greatly help if by any chance you have a shot of the butterfly with its wings closed.

Beautiful
