Indeed thank you so much Martin for the id :)
and we were on that trip together ;-) hence the same spotting :)
the rocks there were just by the river and many but not all were white .

Polyneura refers to the nerve texture in the wings. Cheni would likely refer to China.
We've seen this one before http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/712...
What is it about white rocks?
