Siproeta stelenes

This is identified by the tiny tail feature reminiscent of the swallowtails. Otherwise I have trouble distinguising this species from the philaethria dido. I got examples of siproeta at the Butterfly Botanical Gardens near Si Como No resort as well.

I am calling this one siproeta strictly on the basis of the mini - swallotail features. By color and the pattern of the green, it actually looks more like the dido.

To another butterfly: philaethria dido
