Hm, ok, let's move to "uncertain" then!

Quote that website:
"DISTRIBUTION: C. & S. America.
METHOD OF IDENTIFICATION: adult illustrated by Seitz (1925) plate 5, fig. d4.
NOTES: if Seitz’ identification is correct this seems a quite characteristic species."

Vasily! If you google Tachyphyle basiplaga, images, you can see its expansion: Central America (not Guyana at all). And there is one more, even less similar, Costa Rica again! http://www.boldsystems.org/views/taxbrowser.php?taxid=280426. Link, please, what you used to identify!
