Hi guys. You might want to check Crimson Rose (Atrophaneura hector). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atrophaneur...

The males have black bodies. What is throwing me off though is that your spotting does not have a red head is typical of the Crimson Rose.

Just a thought.

according to the designs then the common rose or the crimson rose would be closest matches

You're right Atul, it was just a suggestion, they do look similar though. That was the closest match I found on the learnaboutbutterflies site.
