Moved.

No upperside of this very specimen. As for the transparency, mind that it was somehow shot to the light.

Upperside, if possible? Are wings transparent indeed?

Morpho polyphemus, Westwood, [1850]. It seems not to have synonyms, just subspecies.

Why it's not databased yet? Isn't it a common species? Either we've got synonyms? Though I can see no any...

Yes, that's Morpho polyphemus as well as #12645.
