Tailed Emperor, missing tails

It seems to have been a tough time for butterflies as I have seen many worse for wear and today a Tailed Emperor Polyura pyrrhus sepronius was a prime example. Missing the distinctive tails as well as a large part of one rear wing and generally looking tattered it took a break in the sun with wings spread so no chance for a photo of the underside of the wings, so following is an earlier photo of one that was in much better condition.
