I thought that was maybe it, but Ezequiel thinks it could be H.omrina. He says that can be very white on both sides.
thanks, lovely photos, could you please email me your uncropped high res jpgs?

I did find H. omrina at the site, which had more dark markings and had that characteristic dark V in the basal area of the hindwing underside... so thats what took me away from the species. But i see what Ezequiel is saying, and am leaning towards a very white H.omrina. Thanks Ezequiel and Kim for your help.
