Thank you for the photo and the information. What beautiful butterflies and chrysalises. I just read about them.
Painted Jezabel (Delias hyparete) and Common Jezabel (Delias eucharis) in the Family Pieridae.
They are found in southern and southeastern Asia and their larval food plants are Mistletoes in the genus Loranthus.

So these are the Common Jezabel (Delias eucharis). Very nice indeed.

I also have a variety of butterflies that visit my garden. The variety I see most often is the Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) that breeds throughout much of the year on my Passionflower (Passiflora) vines.
Despite the common name of Gulf Fritillary, Agraulis is among the Longwings of the tribe Heliconiini, rather than the 'true' Fritillaries of the tribe Argynnini.
