What a great spotting.
I've created a mission so we can document the wide variety of arthropods in Indonesia. It's here if you are interested.

Achmmad, please know that Polyura hebe plautus is the subspecies found in Singapore. The correct name for this butterfly in Java is Polyura hebe fallax (http://ftp.funet.fi/pub/sci/bio/life/ins...).
