I didn't see it alive. If the author says surely the stripes are white, so that's 100% curius.

Dmitry, anything to say or leave it like this?

Originally the wing stripes are colored white (there they might seem different because of the background color), I've got a poor photo made the same day, in shoals, where the stripes are of bright white. Second difference we can see on the shot shown is in its clearly seen transparent fringe at the white stripes frontiers on a forewing. Also, there are distinctions between genitalia, whatsoever, I keep on catching...

The author was helped with identifying at molbiol.ru. What's better for us, that's an another question.

In fact, it would be better to have curius ;--) Will see what the author says...

Seems to me it's rather green Lamproptera meges, not a white Lamproptera curius.
