Obviously it's scientific name isn't Jonathan Sequeira, although that would be good if it was Latinized "sequeiraii." I've corrected the scientific name in my suggestion.

Hi Jonathan. I see this one is still unidentified. I removed my earlier suggestion thinking it isn't even found in Costa Rica, but then noticed your spottings are from all over. So when I looked at this one I see it is from Cuba. I'm pretty sure of the species but don't know enough about Cuba to pinpoint the subspecies. If you look at the distribution in the link above you can probably get the subspecies too.

Thanks so much for the ID
