Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Hey! Please feel free to use this photo, and credit me. Thank you for asking!
I see that this site http://www.orchidfoto.com/displayimage.p... you sent me looks the same but i dunno if ID is trustable.
I am leading towards that one Terinos atlita - Large Assyrian then the Royal Assyrian Butterfly-

Same as yours IDed as Terinos terpander intermedia from funet:

Trustable? No idea where it is coming from (besides the website with "jp"):

Does not really help much more...

Most probably trustable:
Terinos terpander blachieri from Thailand and Laos:

Another Terinos atitla, EOL is usually trustable but these are not yet reviewed meaning trusted:

Nymphalidae, Heliconiinae, Vagrantini. Terinos sp. and looks like being Terinos terpander intermedia. But I must admit there is probably a complete mess with the taxonomy and many IDs you will find are not really trustable??
I believe these links are trustable for Terinos terpander intermedia:

http://yutaka.it-n.jp/hel/710260030.html...
Unfortunately some are without pictures.
Not really trustable:

Also I see that although your comment locates it in Cambodia, your map locates it in Nicaragua?! Do you need help with the map thing?

HI Harrison! This spotting would be a nice addition to the mission The Biodiversity of Cambodia:

Please join and add this spotting and any others that you have of Cambodia to the mission. Thanks!
