Ashish, my book, "Butterflies and Moths of Costa Rica", Chacon et Montero, 2007, has many listings and IDs that are, many times, different from those in other references...not sure why except there may be different philosophies in cataloging methods...perhaps someone with a more scientific background could help...???
