Thanks to you, at least we have some name on it now. I was very confused with regards to the common name too.

I don't think its P. cheni because that probably comes from China.
( 'neura' in Polyneura - means 'nerves' and describes the pattern on the wings.) The colored saddle on the thorax makes me confident but I don't know the species name.
