@Ornithoptera80 Thank you

Thank you for the information Ornithoptera80! Subspecies are something that always confused me :)

Ornithoptera80, is there a notable difference between sub-species in butterflies? Asking for my knowledge...

Sri Lanka subspecies is Tirumala limniace leopardus

Look at the small 'V' shape in the hindwing. Glassy tiger doesn't have that.
Check this,
