Caligo oileus scamander
It´s a shame. It was already dead when I found it. 18 cms wingspan.
Haha I think you're right Bayucca, thanks for correcting me =)
Sara, in my eyes this is Caligo oileus scamander. The broader white band is typical for Scamander. Please, compare the two nice links which looks "identical" to the one from Augusto. But I must admit, these Caligo are not easy to ID. What do you think?http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/im...http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/L/im...https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/26...http://www.bio-nica.info/Ento/Lepido/Nym...
There are two subspecies in Columbia, Caligo brasiliensis galba y Caligo brasiliensis morpheus, though I'm not sure which it is =\ very beautiful spotting though! =D
