Photo take at my backyard there are many of this metalmark butterfly now. Male with pointed forewing. Upperside of both sexes bright red-brown; dark median band not evident. Wing fringes lightly checkered. i have a problem whit this one i´m almost sure is a Swamp metalmark but the range is far from Mexico.
