Description:

Several years ago I grabbed a very distant shot of a White Admiral basking on the wrong side of a river (i.e. the side I wasn't on). I suspected it was a Southern White Admiral - it had an additional white mark on the fore-wing inboard of the main white band.
This time I found another suspect but snagged the underside as well which is, I believe, diagnostic.
