Was told it was a Common Wanderer but I am not sure.
Oh, I see... Thank you for the explanation!
Both ID's above are the same species Neptis laeta, but share many common names, so Albizia sailer and Common Sailer are accepted common names for the species Neptis laeta. You could call it the Albizia sailer or Common Sailer, but the scientific name really determines the species. This also appears with the species Actias sinensis and Actias dubernardi, where the common names can be the Chinese moon moth, but the scientific names are different.https://inaturalist.ca/taxa/357655-Nepti...
Ornithoptera80 Don't you think Common Sailor (Neptis hylas) and Albizia Sailor (Neptis laeta) are two different butterflies? Common Sailor is found in the Indian subcontinent and southeast Asia while Albizia Sailor is found in Sub-Saharan Africa.
