Coordinator notes: Hindwing has a buffy submarginal band that leads to Coronis or Callippe. Due to to the lack of green below (which we expect for this region on the Callippe) we lean to Coronis. Then you can also see on the upper forewing that the marginal spots have paleness to them which we except in the Coronis for this region. Additionally the black markings are more prominent below than above which is more consistent with Coronis in this region. Note the pointing of the forewings and the more rounded spot marginal spots (relative to the fairly triangular or chevron spots of the Callippe.
