Amphibians - Amfibieën - Amphibiens / Re: Dendropsophus sp? | Scinax "sp. 2" (Hylidae)

I think this species has been described as S. ruberoculatus now. See Ferrão, M., de Fraga, R., Moravec, J., Kaefer, I. L., & Lima, A. P. (2018). A new species of Amazonian snouted treefrog (Hylidae: Scinax) with description of a novel species-habitat association for an aquatic breeding frog. PeerJ, 6, e4321. Can someone confirm this?

Thanks, Dimitri! This name is very new, it used to be Leptodactylus heyeri, I suppose.

Halo Klaas,

Looks  Eresia Clio, nymphalinae to me.

This species is Adenomera heyeri.

Best,
Dimitri

Supratympanic fold not continuing on the flanks, so I'm leaning towards L. knudseni on this one.

This does not look like Chironius. My guess would be either Pseudoboa or aberrant coloration of Clelia, but I am definitely not sure about that. How big was the snake?

Butterflies - Dagvlinders - Papillons de jour / Nymphalidae spec

This butterfly was at Peperpot, Suriname, on February 9th, 2018. I first thought it to be Hemes Skipper (Milanion hemes hemes), but then Pieter Vantieghem pointed out to me that the frontlegs were reduced, so that it was Nymphalidae. Any ID?

Thanx!

Butterflies - Dagvlinders - Papillons de jour / Castilia ofella?

This butterfly was on Brownsberg, Suriname, on February 14th, 2018. I first thought it to be a Hemes Skipper (Milanion hemes hemes), but then Pieter Vantieghem pointed out to me that the frontlegs were reduced, so that it was Nymphalidae. He thought it might be White-dotted Crescent (Castilia ofella), but wasn't sure. Auke suggested it looked like Whitened Crescent (Janatella leucodesma), but darker. All these mimicking drives me crazy! Can anyone help?

Thanx,
Klaas

On second thought, my butterfly might actually be Mesosemia lacernata Stichel, 1909, but there are a few other suspects within this genus. See http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/t/Mesosemia_a.htm

Smiles,
Klaas
