Yes, Evgeny, there are 4 species with Apatura schrenckii, I either forgot the metis that in Far East quite differs from the European one. Thus I refuse my previous version I offered so sure, it might be metis indeed. Any opinions more?

Thank you for placing the image. As I'm not a real connossieur, naturally, I identified it wrongly. Thanks! Anyway, I would reckon that there are only two emperor species in Primor'ye, whilst it's in fact four of them. If I were more skilled, would probably shoot them all on sight :) Will be more attentive henceforth, though there sadly will be no chance but in a year :(
