Sorry. I am pretty awful with some id'ing for arthropods.

There might be some overlapping with the geographical ranges, which is quite common in Central America. Obviously you deleted #3, so can't check it again.

Thanks again for more id help! I'm not sure the third one is Dircenna olyras relata, because the info for it says its only native to Nicaragua and south - the third butterfly was also seen in Honduras.
