[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
i assume this is a moth because the wings are horizontal and not vertical. species unknown to me.
it has a wingspan of around 16-17cm, and was photographed in dense jungle with low light and sauna humidity.

you can see the body size because there is some leaf between the wings in the lower body centre.

Overall a very pleasant and informative picture, even though some shiny parts are a wee bit OE. Did you use a flash ?
It is NOT a moth. On the contrary you might say it is an archetypal butterfly, being in the family papilionidae. I am not a specialist, but it looks like it is the common clubtail, Pachliopta coon. If not, a close relative. The wings are horizontal because they are fully opened in a "basking" position

amazing butterfly, TFS Ori
