Does it smell stinky?
@skeiescapes please update your description as it seems you are happy with the ID. ?? Thank you. Good digging around for info Sukanya... thanks.
Found out why they got this name."The vernacular name Stinky Leafwing, and the species name odius are probably references to the odorous rotting fruits to which the butterfly is attracted."" http://www.learnaboutbutterflies.com/Ama...

Excellent, love it!
Thank you for the ID. I thought it was a leafwing.And Diaz José Miguel, here's the close-up! Already had it. Enjoy!
