Hi

This one is either a common mother-of-pearl / Perlemoenskoenlapper / Salamis parhassus or most probably a clouded mother of pearl / newelperlemoenskoenlapper / Salamis anacardii. They are difficult to identify without an upperside but the brownish colour, as well as the fact that I found a couple when I was there make me go for that one. Its a nice record and normally not easily found or spotted by the general public. Well done!
