thanx to all
No problem Gaia its just I have a photo very similar but as Im no expert just assumed I was mistaken as its very easy to do with these beautiful butterflies!
It seems I was wrong all along...it is the Common Sailor as Debbie first suggested, I hope I didn't step too much on anyone's toes...
looks like I neednt have removed my first suggestion of common sailor after all :( Gaia told me it was wrong
Jacob is correct.
Hello! What work you have done, Gaia! Thank you for your hard work. Superficially, Neptis hylas and Athyma perius look identical. Except, notice the uppermost white band in these photos:Neptis hylashttp://eol.org/pages/167058/overview/Athyma periushttp://eol.org/pages/2942862/overviewThe white uppermost band in Neptis hylas is less broken up towards the end, but in Athyma perius it is somewhat broken up. I hope this helps.
Hi! I spent over an hour to get this suggestion, it is definitive a Sergeant and it looks very much like the Common Sergeant, I'm sorry Debbie but the coloration of the body and the size and placement of the spots makes it clear to me that it is not the Common Sailor, I'm not an expert but I'm very sure about this. Your suggestion is a good one, but not spot-on I'm afraid.
