01.02.2011 14:20, Evgeny Komarov This species is identified correctly.

Approve. Idalus aleteria (Schaus, 1905).

That's it, that's it!

Can be (who knows, this is America however).

Why not Idalus aleteria (Schaus, 1905)? Looks like its copy and so brand-new compared to this one of collection

Let's leave Idalus sp. then (species is still questionable).

Guess, that is Idalus herois, just much worn-out.

This one is for sure of the same crew as #5049! Guys! This is the very tropical South America! You are too picky to web databases and shots :)

I checked all Idalus also. No way.

31.01.2011 22:20, Vasiliy Feoktistov

The same is here: what if this one is Arctiidae such as #5049 and 5050? Can't find same though.

If that is butterfly at all???
