Hello Sujoy
This is a Malay Lacewing (Cethosia hypsea hypsina),Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily: Heliconiinae
Genus: Cethosia
The Malay Lacewing is a very pretty butterfly. It is bright orange-red above with broad black borders. The wings are scalloped, giving the hindwings an almost sawtooth-like appearance. The undersides are orange-red with white fasciae and are spotted with black forming an intricate pattern which probably gives the origin of its name "Lacewing".
Thank you for this nice picture.
