Idea leuconoe clara [大白斑蝶] – cross-posted on the Nymphalidae Page.
Assuming this is Eurema hecabe [菏氏黃蝶] and not Eurema blanda arsakia [台灣黃蝶] then that would bring the total number of different species photographed at 55.
If you’re an expert at identifying insects and would like a challenge please don’t hesitate to double check the identifications at the Taiwan’s Butterflies page.
UPDATE: Nope, definitely another Eurema blanda arsakia. Still at 54 species.

After trying to get a good shot for about ten minutes during lunch break, this was sadly the best I could do.
A female Hypolimnas misippus finally stops to rest behind the Taiwan Provincial Government Building in Jhongsing Village.
As promised, a picture with the wings open.
Found this lovely specimen at my new favorite spot to photograph butterflies at a garden behind the Taiwan Provincial Government Building in Jhongsing Village. The real visual treat is when this species opens its wings… stay tuned!
