What about Taygetis virgilia? Not sure!

Personally I do not think it is Thamyra. The thin line must be thicker in Thamyra and it is in my eyes more "speckled" with markings and stronger contrasts, like the other Taygetis I know, whereas Virgilia is in my eyes the more "uniform" and "unicolored" species. Sorry for the strange expressions (it's early in the morning). However, yours is not a good example for a typical Virgilia, if you look at the others in the link. Yours us really very dark (guess also dark environment). Please, check yourself!
Cheers Dominik

I think you´re right, thanks! The photo was taken at night, which could explain why the butterfly looks dark.
