Thank you, bayucca! It's true, mine doesn't has the other yellow triangular mark. So, I think that this butterfly matches with Methona confusa. This species is not well described for Argentina, there are few records.
Daniela, I think yours is Methona confusa not Thyridia psidii. If you look at the lower markings on the hindwing, there is a little triangular marking between to upper 2 patches at the lower marking. This marking is not shown in yours.http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/ih01...http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/ih01...http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/ih...http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/ih01...More Methona confusa:http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/ih01...http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/ih01...What do you think?
Yes, DB, that is just the kind of information that Project Noah seeks for the habitat section of spottings. You could put that information there so that it shows up when people first see the spotting. Thanks!
Hi Maria, I saw this butterfly in a backyard that is full of plants. It was resting in the same position for a while. I took another series of this species in a garden, so I suppose those places could be described like habitat.
Beautiful! Could you please add information to the habitat section about where you saw it? Thanks!
