Common name is Pink-tipped Satyr, which is a little bit more precise, than just Glasswing Butterfly (Glasswinged Butterfly for example is Greta morgane oto). I am not sure if Cithaerias menander is still a valid name. It is a synonym of Cithaerias pireta. And in your case it would be Cithaerias pireta pireta. Indeed you are 99.9% right ;-)... I can't give you the full points for the missspelling ;-)... It should be Cithaerias not Chitaerias...
