Heliconius erato petiverana
Heliconius melpomene rosina.
Amount of spots, extension of the white bar and the smell ;-)
Unfortunately I don't have one from the underside. For curiosity, what characteristics I must see at underside of the individual to identity one species from the other?
Do you have another picture from the underside? It m,ight be Heliconius erato, but could also be Heliconius melpomene. So to be sure about the species we should see the underside. Common name is Erato Longwing or Red Postman or Postman for Heliconius melpomene.
