As the species is not databased yet, still we've got time to name it...

If you still own the specimen, I'd advise you to boil it then to make sure since the hind wings confuse. Yet only Euploea mulciber can have such shining forewings.

The second photo: Dmitry, what do you think?

This is Euploea mulciber male, look at the second photo.

Thanks, moved.

Still it's Euploea sylvester.
Local subspecies happens to have no white spots.

Actually, the assortment is not large. With mentioned above (doubts about how the dark color on its hind wings goes to the light one), it can be also supposed to be Euploea sylvester (yet this one originally has white spots on its hind wings), and Euploea tulliolus, what's most likely but hasn't been mentioned to be expanded over there.

Imo, for an "uncertain" male that's quite sure:

Sure enough to move it to "uncertain" or just Euploea sp?

Euploea and no farther, since it's hard to name the species by such a photo. I'd suggest Euploea mulciber.
