About 17MM. Skipping from leaf to leaf. Orange yellow upper wings and white tail.
Beach forest near the lowland forestbof Santubong Mountain.
I see what you mean about the legs , Branded Imperial seems to be the only one with striped ones , although the orange coloration normally covers the whole wing .I am a bit stumped , but will keep looking.
Paul Davis...Branded Imperial. Eooxylides tharis.Legs and Antennae have black and white bands wheras Jacoona ansuja are all white. Your thoughs?
A very beautiful, and a very colorful butterfly....two, very beautiful, and very colorful photos....
Tricky this one , it is similar to - Great Imperial (Jacoona anasuja ) , maybe a sub-species .
