Moved. Dmitry, also please check out the undersides uploaded lately...

Considering that this is Hypolimnas female, there are such species of this genus in Java island:
Hypolimnas anomala
Hypolimnas antilope
Hypolimnas bolina
Hypolimnas misippus.
So no one seems to be similar to this one but Hypolimnas bolina, and, to take into account that females of this species can quite vary, I'm 100% sure, this is bolina.

Not sure as for Bolina due to that it's way larger than those Bolina I saw at the Phuket Butterfly Garden, from where I got a female, took it away from a gecko, so it was quite beat-up. I'll take a photo of their both undersides in days and add it here.
