Bayucca, I saw that photo of the link, and it is pretty much like my spotting, but... those yellow dots that are in "my" butterfly's neck are confusing me. D'Abrera's specimens don't have it, nor the one pictured at (ID'd as Chorinea amazon). The former says there are six species of Chorinea, the last says there are eight. Your oppinion, please?

This is most probably Chlorinae licursis:

Sorry, to busy for looking at this beauty! I am ready to sleep in some minutes... Come back at the weekend! But it could be tricky as you indicated.

Bayucca, D'Abrera cites several Chorinea butterflies, but no one seems to match exactly this one. Have you something to say about it?
