This is not a common form so not in beginner the guide. You are no longer beginner so should be checking BMP :lol:
The Great Eggfly is one of the most variable butterfly species and there are many intermediate forms. This one looks like the on #12 Plate 24 : " -f near subsp naresi".

Where did you photograph this individual ? Kranji Marsh ?

Hiyo such a quantum leap from a fold-out guidesheet to a 730-page tome! :ko:
Isn't there anything else in-between? :cry:

This one's taken at Neo Tiew.
