Hola Sebastian. I now have realized why I am 4 goals behind with my ID. The ID of the link from the Periander ID is wrong. TrekNature is not a bad website but it is an untrusted one. There is no control or moderating of the ID there, unless there is somebody around with an expertise. The same problem are other communities like flickr or Picasa. If you take a link from one of such a portal you always need a double check with a trusted site like EOL or the one from my link (even frm the same area as yours!), BOA or bugguide.com, which are both reference libraries. Even with wikipedia you have to be careful.
Rhetus periander looks like this: http://www.learnaboutbutterflies.com/Ama...
Look at the forewings, Periander has not the whole forewing from the body to the whitish stripe in blue like yours and Dysoni and Periander has no white tip of the tails.
Please, take the time to check the ID again and change it. It is very important that we on Project Noah have the correct ID of our spottings. Thanks!

I apologize, but although your Rhetus periander has already 3 "+" this one is Rhetus dysoni caligosus, male!
