SPECIES : Salamis parhassus
A large butterfly; the wingspan is 65–80 mm for males and 75–90 mm for females. The male and female are similar in colour and pattern. The base colour of the upper surface of the wings is greenish white with a violet sheen in the wet-season form, and pearly white in the dry-season form.
GENUS : Protogoniomorpha
Protogoniomorpha was viewed as part of Salamis by Ackery et al. (1995), but Wahlberg et al. (2005) showed that it is a distinct genus, and that one of its former species (Protogoniomorpha cytora and possibly also the similar Protogoniomorpha temora) belongs in Junonia.
