Banded peacock Butterfly on Bidens pilosa

Not very large, about 5 cm of wingspan.

Habitat:

Garden outside from Mérida City

Notes:

I do not take care of the garden as wild flowers attract far more little beasts than boring grass.

Thanks to celestialprincess101 and bayucca for their suggetions; both agree on the genus, I do not dare to put specific name but it looks more like A. fatima than to A. amathea.
