    Probably Daphnis hypothous, maybe D. nerii. The colors are a bit hard to tell.

    Thanks! Colors more closely match Nerii but wing leading edges and tips are somewhat different.
    That camo paint job sure works well in tropical foliage. If it hadn't landed on that bamboo leaf we might not have even noticed it.
