Butterflies and Moths of Ecuador
1. Please try to be as accurate as possible with your description and location. 2. Please try to upload clear photographs and include its size (aprox.) in the description. 3. I recommend to try to have very clear the antenna, the four wings and if possible, both the upper and lower side of the wings. 4. We need ONLY butterflies from Ecuador.

According to the Smithsonian Institution, there are about 17,500 species of butterflies in the World. Ecuador is one of the 17 "Megadiversity countries" of the World, which means that probably a very big portion of such biodiversity is located within its borders. This mission will try to document the butterfly species of this country, its distribution and notes that can help us to increase our understanding of this beautiful creatures.
