Moved.

Could be moved to Heliconius ismenius telchina (Doubleday 1847), "uncertain". Guess this won't be identified further for no other versions suggested (at least, I do not have more).

Isn't this Heliconius ismenius telchina? Or another subspecies.

I'm definitely not a pro, but can suggest one of Perrhybris or Dismorphia (looking at the photo I recalled an illustration of the old "Animal life" series published in 1969, volume 3, page 193).

Wrong: surely larger one.

Vasily, what do you mean "preview"? Vice versa, larger photo, huh?

09.02.2011 10:23, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Yet something of Mechanitis, imho. In this case preview wouldn't be useless.

Thus I can identify every thing there....... to the order.

08.02.2011 20:22, Peter Khramov

See, how it's good when everything put to Nymphalidae. Can be sure at least of a family ;--)

08.02.2011 17:22, Dmitriy Pozhogin

May be even Heliconidae. Though there everything is put to Nymphalidae.

08.02.2011 17:19, Evgeny Komarov

Ithomiidae. Further is silence as an answer...

08.02.2011 0:03, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Meh, afraid even good connection won't help. Tough case.

08.02.2011 0:01, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Can be, can be (roughly speaking). Connection will presumably suck till the very morning (thanks god, this website works).

07.02.2011 23:57, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Why not Mechanitis or Forbestra genera, or something else of Ithomia??

07.02.2011 23:49, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Can't check Heliconius sp. (connection sucks), but suspect ismenius?
