Ashih,
yes, you are right, but usually upper wings are bigger than lower wings. Adarsha pics shows that all pairs of wings are almost the same

UrifahRidlo,
All butterflies have pair of upperwings and underwings.
Its lucky shot where Adarsha grabbed wings movement in different directions.

All butterflies have 4 wings...maybe this is some kind of misshapen specimen with the hind wings enlarged?

@Nuwan: When i googled, i found only closed wing wanderer mating...Is it four winged then??

@Jellis : It was flying..i too find no two abdomens or heads...I doubt its mating...Do Four winged butterflies exist???

Could be since the pattern on both wings are slightly different that could be male and female, but I don't see another head or abdomen.
