Butterflies - Dagvlinders - Papillons de jour / Unknown butterfly
« Last post by kdjong on Sun, 22 March 2020, 07:56:14 PM »
I am sorry for the bad picture, but can this butterfly be labeled with a name? Near Palumeu, Suriname, February 15th, 2020.

Butterflies - Dagvlinders - Papillons de jour / Leucidia brephos
« Last post by kdjong on Tue, 17 March 2020, 07:57:43 AM »
This little white butterfly is Leucidia brephos. Couldn't find it at first and on butterfliesofamerica.com it is only mentioned for Brazil (RJ), but still...

I guess this is Sarota chrysus? It was in the night of February 10th (2020) near a lamp on Brownsberg.

Butterflies - Dagvlinders - Papillons de jour / Nymphidium mantus?
« Last post by kdjong on Tue, 17 March 2020, 06:06:00 AM »
This one looks like Nymphidium mantus (http://butterfliesofamerica.com/L/t/Nymphidium_mantus_a.htm), but distribution says Costa Rica & Venezuela & Brazil (so not necessarily the Guianas). I also found it on http://buttmoth.org/PAPILION/nymphidium.htm and on Google I found a picture of a stamp of 'Guyana' with Nymphidium mantus on it (https://nl.pinterest.com/pin/ATapUFOJQW2NPbmFkFJRzRjOZsMc6_H40txnlHoA2ibOwhnHNkQAS2M/), so I guess it should be around?
I would appreciate correction or confirmation!

I thought this was one of the most beautiful Hesperiidae that I have ever seen, but then I found it to be Riodinidae. Chorinea cf. octauius octauius. I found it near Fred's Zintete camp, February 9th, 2020. Any confirmation?

Wow, so fast! Thank you very much, Hajo!

I was just going to add a picture of the upper side of the same butterfly. I thought to help identification, but it's still a nice pic.

Butterflies - Dagvlinders - Papillons de jour / Re: Heliconius spec Brownsberg

Hi,
This is not a Heliconius and also not a Mechanitis. It is Eresia eunice eunice, a nymphalid that is a Batesian mimic of unpalatable Heliconius/Mechanitis.

Hi,
If you look closely, you'll see six legs. All Nymphalidae have the forelegs reduced, so this is a member of the Pieridae (whites & sulphurs). It is Moschneura pinthous pinthous. It is a Batesian mimic of unpalatable Ithomiinae (Nymphalidae). Nice photograph!

Isn't this a Hermes Satyr (Hermeuptychia hermes)? Very difficult family, so many look-a-likes with very minimal differences...

Smiles,
Klaas
