This species is found in wet rainforest areas at elevations between sea level and about 1000m.

It is recognised by it's particularly brilliant orange underside colouration, very distinctive markings, and extraordinarily long and twisted tails. The upperside wings are blackish brown, with broken white markings in the distal area of the hindwings.

Very nice. Not sure what it is, but you may want to look at this page: There are some differences between your shot and the examples on the page given above, but there are also many similarities and this may be a starting point.
