Hypolimnas misippus, female.
A butterfly related to the Common Eggfly. Males are black with white spots.
Females on the other hand are mimics of either Danaus chrysippus or
butterflies of genus Cethosia, especially Cethosia luzonica, both occurs in
most islands here in the Philippines. With regards to distribution, I guess,
this flies in most of Asia.

I have pictures of 5 butterflies that I'm having a hard time identifying. I
would appreciate any help you can give me in IDing them. The pictures were
taken at a butterfly house so I don't know their geographical range either.
The images can be found at:
