The Double-branded Blue Crow, Euploea sylvester harisii (C. & R. Felder)

This is a rarer Euploea, seen only in a deeply forested jungle trail. It can be instantly recognised by the two long brands on its forewing when it is on the wings. The FW upper has a beautiful deep blue lustre under certain angles. It has a much rounded forewing apex and ressembles a large E. tulliolus.
