Deudorix antalus - (1)-

The Brown Playboy (both male and female are called thus!)
We had at least 2 of its food plants, Syzygium and and Schotia, in the NBG next to us.

I have included a close up to show the detail. Hewtson (1863), who created the genus, describes the large head, prominent eyes, and conspicuous lobe on the anal angle of the hind wing - quite remarkable.
See also Deudorix antalus - (2) -.
