Siproeta stelenes biplagiata
Early in the morning of September 4 we got to witness the beginning of the adult butterfly life of this siproeta. I sometimes have trouble distinguishing this species from the philaethria dido since both of them are green, but the swallow tail extension of the wing here is consistent with the siproeta.
I think these are siproetas, but I am not confident of my ability to distinguish them from the philaethra dido.
