I thought so too. The femalePapilio maackiiat the top of HCC is very bright, blue-green spraying http://lepidoptera.ru/gallery/3147, including from flying in the southern district tries Sakhalin subspecies P. m. tutanus Fenton, [1882] http://www.thais.it/entomologia/farfalle/schede/sc_3.htm; It can be seen here. And bianora subspecies P. b. nakaharae (Matsumura, 1929), who lives on Sakhalin, only male on the LC is not a very dense dim green and blue spray http://catocala.narod.ru/pap18.html Or even in Sakhalin and others. subspecies have? But others - namely the blue, as Alexander writes.

"More like a female P.maackii" - I explain why: First bianor usually darker, as if the blue than Maak (something between a dialis and maackii), and secondly, have shorter and considerably bianora fatter "tails" on their hind wings than in Maak.
